Talk:Osterley Park

Latest comment: 10 months ago by Sciencefish in topic National Trust pilot

Hi! please help answer a transliteration question on Hebrew Wikipedia: is it pronounced Oster-lee or Oster-lay? Thanks! Aviad

I asked this question a long time ago, and no-one answered. Any response from our London-based wikipedians? Aviad2001 11:16, 13 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi -

Using the word "marred" to describe the relationship of the M4 and the park is judgemental/emotive and probably inaccurate. The M4 does not really pass through what most people would consider to be the park (ie. the publically accessible part of it): most of the land surrounding the estate is farm-land or sports facilities. The M4 passes through the farm fields and only abuts the estate before passing between the golf club and Warren farm sports fields. If one is to be emotive, most would consider the fields it goes through to be dull and featureless. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marek1975 (talkcontribs) 22:31, 5 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lee MillerEdit

In the section on Home Guard training, it is claimed that one Lee Miller was in some way involved, naked, in camouflage training. As she was a war photographer in the UK at about the right time, this is actually plausible. I will try and verify the claim when I have the relevant files out at the UK National Archives in the coming weeks. I know it looks like mindless vandalism, but the detail I think makes it worth holding off any remedial action until I report back. Dolive21 (talk) 21:56, 25 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Osterley Park / Osterley HouseEdit

The article is named Osterley Park, while the infobox is Osterley House. Is this an article about the park that has the house in it, or is it about the house and its associated grounds? Suggest changing the name of the article to Osterley House, given that is the main focus. Sciencefish (talk) 11:15, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good idea, the bulk of the article is about the house. Murgatroyd49 (talk) 12:05, 13 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Shouldn't there be a mention of the M4 being built through this? (talk) 19:45, 15 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, if you can find an appropriate reference to use. Sciencefish (talk) 19:59, 15 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

National Trust pilotEdit

Hello! During late June, July and some of August, I'm working on a paid project sponsored by the National Trust to review and enhance coverage of NT sites. You can find the pilot edits here, as well as a statement and contact details for the National Trust. I am leaving this message when I make a first edit to a page; please do get in touch if you have any concerns. Lajmmoore (talk) 14:08, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi please see Wikipedia:Paid-contribution disclosure on how to disclose, Wikipedia:Conflict of interest on how to submit edit requests rather than edit the actual pages as you have a COI. Sciencefish (talk) 18:56, 3 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
