Inside there is a display of old photographs, including one showing the building in the 1970s when it housed Knights Chapel Works – where garden ornaments and other stone items were made and for sale. In the 19th century the building was a Primitive Methodist Chapel.

    I believe Lukers who did plumbing and heating were here before that. They moved to Ock Street but are long gone

    Great that it is a business, I hope they do well.

    When I saw it was empty though I did always think it would make great flats. A half dozen at least!

    And on another note – today’s Oxford Times had this Head line “ Not so sleepy Abingdon is real tech powerhouse”
    According to figures just released by the respected Tech Nation Survey, Abingdon is third only to Oxford and Cambridge as being the most powerful tech powerhouse in the country thanks to the science parks and Inovation centres, they go on to say Abingdon attracted a whooping £439 m in investment between 2015 to 2018.
    That’s good news, isn’t it?

    Good news indeed – and part of the reason why we need more houses, and ones which are decent homes, not shoe-boxes crammed into every inch of spare space.
