Medieval Graffiti
There were a lot of walks put on by the Friends of Abingdon yesterday. They included the Ock Valley Walk,

and boundary walk. It is always a surprise to go on any of these walks to find how many new things you can discover about Abingdon when shown by an expert.

I went on the Lost Abbey Walk which ended at the Old Abbey Buildings – now maintained by the Friends of Abingdon. Somebody has recently discovered some medieval grafitti on a chimney breast,

It shows what looks like a portcullis, and they think it is the symbol of a family who stayed there in the 15th Century.

The same chimney breast has also more recent grafitti such as this name from 1931. If anybody knows of other medieval graffiti in Abingdon I would be interested to know. It could make an interesting tour.
