Also, thanks to the Friends of Abingdon, there will be a number of organised walks around Abingdon. There is a new one in the afternoon visiting the places in Abingon most associated with St Edmund of Abingdon. He was born, “probably in West St Helen Street”, and there was a chapel dedicated to his memory somewhere nearby.

There is a church-like building, half way up West St Helen Street, depicted on the Medieval Monks Map in the museum. So this could have been what that chapel looked like.
