Outline of the Abbey Church

At 14:30 on Sunday 31 July there is a guided tour of Abingdon’s Mediaeval Abbey by the Friends of Abingdon. To book a place email: pb@paulineburren.co.uk or phone 01235 521873. It will include a walk round various grounds and buildings including the outline of the Abbey Church …

… charted using underground scanning techniques by the Lost Abbey Project.

Today there were a group of people learning Nordic walking round the outline.

And there was me, with my more erratic walking, filming the outline of the Abbey Church, and the Abbey Gateway…

Over Heritage Weekend there will be the launch of the Lost Abbey information trail. More of that soon.

    Thank you so much for all the effort that goes into this website. I love catching up with all that goes on in the town and your pictorial record gives a real insight into everyday life and the fascinating history of Abingdon. I have lived here for 22 years and am just getting to know the place!

    Yes, it is a great web site: I even saw the author out after midnight the other morning, amongst the revellers, chronicling the new street pastors scheme!

    Indeed – Backstreeter was out a lot later than I was, and I WAS one of the street pastors!
