Fire crews
This morning in town M&Co had to be closed and cordoned off because the corner of the roof had come adrift, and was looking dangerous. Two fire engines from Abingdon-on-Thames Fire Station were dispatched.

    I hope they got Listed Building Consent to remove part of this building – the last bit of evidence for the long-lost Queen’s Hotel!

    I agree Ant.

    Architectural drawings both before and afterwards, if you please. Oh…and £500 for a consultant.
