About these pages
These pages are intended as an on-line archive covering the most interesting buildings in Abingdon, the people who have lived in them through the centuries, and the businesses and other activities that were carried on in them. They are being built up gradually, and if you cannot find what you are looking for this may be because the entry has not yet been completed. Entries typically start with highlights sections intended for the general user, and then go into greater detail for those who would like to know more.
The pages are the responsibility of the Abingdon Buildings and People group, which is part of the Abingdon Area Archaeological and Historical Society, better known as the AAAHS.
We thank the Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council and the Choose Abingdon Partnership for inviting us to be part of their portal, the Oxfordshire Buildings Record for their cooperation and for access to their research, and numerous copyright holders who have permitted us to use their pictures or texts. If we have inadvertently used any copyright material without permission, please let us know.
We welcome comments, criticisms, and suggestions. Especially, we welcome offers to contribute additional entries on buildings, families, and other relevant topics. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
