This talks about Cumberland Market being near to St Pancras railway station. If you follow the canal arm, you'll find that (at least its last location, it may have moved) it was on the west-side of Euston railway station. Was the opening statement location intentional? —Sladen (talk) 11:28, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

The Crown Estate[edit]

Hello. I work at The Crown Estate, and I was looking at the Wikipedia page about Cumberland Market today.

In the section on "Decline", it says " ... and in 1952, the Crown Commissioners sold the 32 acres ... " . I should point out that The Crown Commissioners administer the Legal system in Scotland, and are quite different to The Crown Estate Commissioners". This section also gives the impression that The Crown Estate sold ALL of it's interests in Cumberland Market at this time, which is not true. It still owns a large amount of properties there (for example, all the buildings surrounding the allotment gardens, which used to be the canal basin.

I am really new at this, and wondered if someone could edit it.

Thanks for contacting us. You've done exactly the right thing in raising an issue on a project talk page. Normally anyone can edit any article, but in cases where there could be a conflict of interest we ask that interested parties suggest changes instead. This is required solely so we can ensure the article is written from a neutral point of view. If you feel anything else needs to be added or removed from any article the right thing to do is raise a note on the talk page associated with the article. We would also be interested in an third party sources you may know of which confirm the contents of the article as this would help satisfy our verifiability requirements. I've made the change from Crown Commissioners to Crown Estate Commissioners. Can you suggest an alternative wording to remove the implication that all land was sold?
