Winding back the Clock at the Square

The war memorial in Abingdon, Oxfordshire has had a slight lean for a number of years, and is being monitored to see whether it has stopped moving or whether the time has come to underpin it.

Wind back the clock to the 11th Sept 1921, and this scrapbook picture shows the Earl of Abingdon unveiling the same war memorial.

Wind back the clock further, and those trees shrink back, disappear and another, less weighty, monument takes pride of place at the Square in Abingdon, Berkshire.
