More about this scene


Caption for Woburn, From The Cedars C1955: The Abbey was originally a Cistercian community established in 1145. Reverting to the Crown after the Dissolution, the land was largely dormant until King Edward VI granted it to the Russell family in 1574. The house was largely rebuilt in the 18th century; there have been several additions made since, including much of the infill on the elevation shown here.

Memories of Woburn Abbey

I recall visiting Woburn in the 1970s and towards the end of the public tour there was a series of box dioramas showing military'scenes. I think these were mostly Napoleonic. Does anyone know who modelled these, and does anyone know what happened to them? Regards Raymond
