Thanks to the Erin Bardwell Collective, who played at The Yeah Baby Free Rock Festival, for the soundtrack on this, the July 2011 slideshow. I’m off to Yorkshire for our summer holidays so this post will probably be the last for a week.
Recently a Tesco Express opened in what was the Fitzharris Arms – very close to an existing convenience store called The One Stop.
The Ox pub is going the same way – taking on the Tesco colours – and right next door to another convenience store called Best One.
Advance warning signs have appeared round the town centre over the last 24 hours. The top of East St. Helen Street will be CLOSED for two weeks in the middle of August.
The spelling looks perfect to me – apart from the spelling of Lombard Street.
At 14:30 on Sunday 31 July there is a guided tour of Abingdon’s Mediaeval Abbey by the Friends of Abingdon. To book a place email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01235 521873. It will include a walk round various grounds and buildings including the outline of the Abbey Church …
… charted using underground scanning techniques by the Lost Abbey Project.
Today there were a group of people learning Nordic walking round the outline.
And there was me, with my more erratic walking, filming the outline of the Abbey Church, and the Abbey Gateway…
Over Heritage Weekend there will be the launch of the Lost Abbey information trail. More of that soon.
