Britain's Oldest Town

The letters from the MUSIC PRACTICE have been peeled away revealing an older impression, FARM SEEDS, on the window of 25 Bridge Street.

In the room next door, formerly the Tourist Information Centre, there resides a cabinet from an earlier time - that once held Garden & Farm Seeds. This was once the shop for Harris and Matthews, Corn and Seed Merchants of Abingdon, and the Old Gaol behind was the grain store...

With posters in position, the doors were again locked.

"Choose Abingdon - Britains Oldest Town - Continuously Inhabited Since The 'Iron Age'."
