Assessment Report

  1. The article should make use of sections.
  2. Images need to be added.
  3. References and Citations are crucial for wikipedia, and so these must be added as the article is expanded. Make sure that as many as possible are "in-line" citations.(See WP:References, WP:V, and WP:CITE for guidance.)

Anyone got any thoughts about whether it is worth separating out the house (16th century onwards) into a separate article? Pixie2000 14:11, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

I think it should be left together as one article because it's partially the same building (important parts of the abbey included in the post supression mansion) and the monastic and post monastic history of the site are inextricably linked, also wiki doesn't do this for other former English monasteries with mansions on the site. I've done a bit of work on the article but the whole things needs a serious rewrite to be perhaps a little like the articles on Netley Abbey or Cleeve Abbey, a thing I might do at some point. The details on the post supression history as it stands are sketchy and in need of major improvement but it's unfortunately something my sources don't cover. It sounds like you are interested in Vale Royal and it would be great if you wanted to do something about this aspect. Soph 10:41, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

I think you are right - I will update when I have the time and done the research! Thanks for your feedback and input Pixie2000 18:08, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

There is some errors on here can anyone fix them? Can Anyone fix the ref Errors ?

I've done many of them, especially the in-line references. The external links, however, (renamed as "other sources" for the moment) should really be click-on links to those external websites mentioned. Hogyn Lleol ★ (chat) 20:01, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
