Abbey Gateway

Postcard Craze
This postcard (County Series. No 3326) is of the Abbey Gateway, Abingdon, and was sent with the message ‘This and some very old buildings here all over the place.’.

The very old buildings are still here in Abingdon, but farm animals no longer laze about.

There were a couple of stone faces over the gateway I had not noticed before. Are they multiplying?

    as a kid with my brothers we used to say that you must hold your breath when walking under there.. or something not ever specified might happen.
    was this a family thing or did anyone else ever hear of this?

    I do this too…and now, so do my children…but only because I heard it on this blog!

    If you don’t, the faces will come and steal your breath while you sleep!
