There was an article in the Abingdon Herald saying ‘Abingdon school boy has chosen the name of a new development’ Abbey Fields. It is an excellent name. There has been excitement around the Dunmore Road area because the first houses have appeared at Abbey Fields.
The housebuilder is Barratt, well known to some of us for their 1970s helicopter adverts.
Meanwhile at Kings Gate the first houses have been occupied.
The road into the estate has been called Morgan Vale after former Mayor and Freeman of Abingdon, Janet Morgan. The Oxford Mail had an obituary.
