A New Green Plaque


This Stone Building, next to Albert Park, now has an explanatory green plaque...

Are there any other buildings in Abingdon that need a green plaque to explain what they are?

Thanks for this - my daughter goes to Carswell School and wondered how it got its name. I didn't know until I saw this.....

It's a shame the green plaque contains a spelling mistake.

It should be "Tomkins' Almshouses" not "Tomkin's Almshouses"

oops. a bit late now for correction.

I always told my children that a witch lived there. They would knock on the door and then run back into the park before 'she came out and got them'.
