I read in this article about John Wardley's career the other day that Tussauds had planned on turning Woburn Abbey into their flagship theme park before Alton Towers became available and they went for that instead. It seems that John and a few others had prepared detailed plans for Woburn Abbey and I'd love to see them one day. Anyway, upon trying to dig around a little more for information on the Woburn Abbey project, I found this American newspaper that has been uploaded to Google which goes into detail about Tussauds before they took control of Alton Towers and abandoned their Woburn Abbey plans. I thought I'd create a topic on here and share the articles in case anyone else wanted to have a read. I know a few of you might already know all about this, but I didn't so I guess there must be a few others that don't know some of the things that these two articles touch on. I'll try and find other bits and bobs to post and I hope that if anyone else knows anything or finds something out that they'll post that too.
