We have set the clocks back, but time is flying by

October 25, 2015

Clocks went back
The clocks in Abingdon were turned back an hour last night – at the end of British Summer Time. St Helen’s Church had already adjusted when I went out this morning.
Clocks went back
The parking machines were just being changed back.
Clocks went back
And St Nicolas Church had already been adjusted.

It was a lovely day with sunshine and lots of fallen leaves. I can hardly believe we are already into the fortnight of Halloween, fireworks, and Remembrance Day. 2015 is just flying by.

    Apologies for hijacking Backstreeter’s thread but this may be the best place to post at short notice (with the excuse of “Just-in-time”):
    Tomorrow (Tues 27 Oct) Sarah Outen will ride through Abingdon on the final legs of her London to London, via the World expedition. Later she will kayak South through Abingdon Lock (tbd)

    After listening to various comments at the ‘old Abilngdon photographic’ exhibition in the community shop I reckon that there are quite a few people who’d like the clock turned back about seventy years to before the town planners/developers destroyed the place.

    I haven’t seen the photographic exhibition so apologies for any duplication but if you can face it, here is photographic evidence of the “destruction of Abingdon…”

    The Corn Exchange and Queens Hotel were real loses. Nothing of charm has been built in Abingdon since this desecration. Note how all the architects and developers in the Town prefer to locate in old, characterful buildings …. no new tat for them.
