Two new town maps

Two new town maps
Two new town maps have been installed by the riverside and Rye Farm car park. They were created and paid for by Pat Bryden in memory of Alan Bryden ‘who worked to make Abingdon a better place’. Alan was often involved in community events, and also served as a County Councillor and Town Councillor.

Here he is leading the Boundary Walk on 1st January 2012 and talking to former Freeman of Abingdon, Mrs Janet Morgan.

Bath Street Bench Repair

Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza
Steve sent me this picture of a bench in Bath street that has been unusable until a local carpenter took the matter into their own hands and repaired it. They even added a new leg for safety.

If you would like to use the seat then it can be found near the Black Swan and behind Poundland.

New Green Box in the Back Street

New Green Box
Work is progressing well on changing St Edmund House from offices to flats, and during the process the roads near us on West St Helen Street – formerly known as the Back Street, have been dug up to connect the flats with water and sewerage.
New Green Box
The road has also been dug up further down, and a new green cabinet installed to connect more telephone and superfast broadband lines.
New Green Box
The old green box bulged with so many multi-coloured cables that it was a wonder BT engineers could ever disentangle them to get them to the correct property.

Wrapped Objects Round Abingdon

These pictures were taken by my son ten years – as part of an art project which just involved wrapping objects round Abingdon.

You can imagine. There were ten or twenty in the class wrapping up street furniture and each other in the name of art.

A green bus shelter

Abingdon High Street
When most of the bus shelters in Abingdon got painted black, about six years ago, one bus shelter escaped. It can be found where Landseer Walk comes out on Preston Road. The shelter has not seen a lick of paint in decades, but is not completely forgotten. The 41 – South Abingdon Town Service – stops there.
