Saturday 16th July 2022 – BAS Visit: Abingdon

Meet at the Abingdon County Hall Museum at 11:15am. We will depart at 11:30am for a 90-minute walk lead by a local guide. Cost will be £10 per person (cash on the day).

Abingdon is a very interesting historic town which was the county town of Berkshire from 1556 to 1869. We won’t see any traces of the Iron Age oppidum or the Roman town but there are remains of the Saxon abbey from 676AD and many interesting features from this period up to the present day.

There will be the option of a pub lunch afterwards – venue TBC.

To book your place please email Tim Lloyd at tim.lloyd222(at) by 2nd July latest.

There are some small car parks in the town centre but the best option is the Hales Meadow car park just south of the town across the river.

Abingdon County Hall Museum is at Market Place, Abingdon OX14 3HG
