Abingdon-on-Thames


St Helens Church, the Old Anchor Inn,and the Almshouses are reflected here in the River Thames at Abingdon.

The Abingdon forum has had a short discussion thread about whether our town should use the name 'Abingdon-On-Thames'.

The longer name is and can be used. Wikipedia begins the town's entry: "Abingdon (traditionally known as Abingdon-on-Thames)..." And The Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce sees promotional value in 'On-Thames' .

I stick to 'Abingdon' because its shorter.
