Abingdon Blog

Abingdon is probably the oldest town in Britain - continuously inhabited since the Iron Age. Abingdon is seven miles downstream from Oxford on the River Thames. The Abingdon Blog is a photo record of events and places in Abingdon - mostly every day.

Timber!


One of the Lime Trees along Caldecott Road, near the lodge at St Amand Drive, was being felled today.

The lodge itself can be seen (minus the tree) here surrounded by a wall that was built about fifteen years ago. The original wall was flattened when a builders van failed to notice it. I expect the wall and the lodge are the remnants of the once great Caldecott House.

The tree rings were difficult to count because the saw erased the outer marks. There were eighteen near the centre, but I would guess there were three times that amount.
