A new bollard

Down near Saint Helen's Wharf, the metal barrier, which used to impede wheeled access, was removed last year. It was neither wheelchair nor baby-buggy friendly, and had to be got rid of in these post Disability Discrimination Act times.

The replacement was a traditional bollard which fits in better with the traditional looking wharf.

Many thanks to Colin, an ex-pat Abingdonian, for sending this picture of the Wharf. He started scanning old negatives onto the computer, and found this one taken by his dad.

Well - people (not me!) say Abingdon is a bit quiet now - looks like the same applied when that photo was taken! Or perhaps they'd just had a good lunch in the Anchor!
