The Workshop of Parliamentary Scholars and Parliamentarians is held every two years at Wroxton in Oxfordshire - and the ninth workshop takes place this weekend. Some of the papers will appear in The Journal of Legislative Studies.

Wroxton College is the UK campus for Fairleigh Dickinson University, an independent university in Madison, New Jersey. It has been known previously as Wroxton Abbey. Lord North, the Prime Minister at the time of the American War of Independence, lived here and after his death was buried at the local church.

A short biography of the man who lost America can be found at the No 10 Wesite - accessible here.
There is a fascinating blog about the history of the mansion at http://www.wroxtonabbey.org/
