The Abingdon Workhouse Trail (New in 2021)

The Abingdon Union Workhouse existed for almost 100 years, and was big enough to house 500 people. There is a trail you can follow during Heritage Open Days to see how they lived, what they ate and what they did, then you can see how the land became houses in the 1940s. There is also a quiz and a treat for children.

The trail guide is available from the information stall on the Market Place on Saturday 18th September 2021 or downloadable on a link from Abingdon Heritage self guided walks.

    The trail will be available 10-4 Saturday and Sunday – leaflets available from the start at 24 Oxford Road as well if that’s easier.

    I once went on guided walk with Vince but we ended up going down a ginnel to a cemetery. Then we had to sit in a garden & watch squirrels but we weren’t allowed to feed them as Vince said it was illegal too
