The one remaining butcher

The trend to supermarket shopping has reduced the number of butchers shops in the town centre to one. A casual visitor might not realise that one existed.

But a few chalked 'A' boards tell of the presence of a shop along one of the little frequented paths in the town centre - Queen Street.

Hedges have a grand shop window display in the Oxford Covered Market , but Hedges in Abingdon are a lot less showey.

The main business of the Abingdon branch appears to be delivering to pubs and restaurants and hotels and homes.
