New plans[edit]

Plans set to go on display for Oldway Mansion vision is in the newspaper today. Unlike the 2007 casino proposal which fizzled out, the hotel and homes plan looks likely (subject to some WP:CRYSTAL) to go ahead at some point.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 14:20, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Links to other articles[edit]

I've added a reference to tie into the mention of Oldway under First Civil Partnerships in UK, which also shows a picture of the main staircase. FYI, it's also mentioned in the BLP of Peter Scott-Morgan.LisaNotsimpson (talk) 13:02, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not entirely convinced about the notability of this in the context of Oldway Mansion, as this was not a UK-wide first, only an event involving a civil partnership in Devon. The sourcing at [1] was removed because it fails WP:SPS and the material at User:LisaNotsimpson suggests a possible conflict of interest..--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 13:30, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Oldway Mansion, October 2013

At the time of writing, it is possible to walk around the grounds at Oldway Mansion, but the building is now closed and it is unclear when it will reopen.[2] Also, one of the trees blew down in a storm, creating a rather forlorn look to the grounds.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 11:56, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

George Soudon Bridgman[edit]

Re this edit: the architect's name was Bridgman although it may look as though the "e" has gone missing. His marriage and death are recorded here. Other sources also have the correct spelling.[3]--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 05:28, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
