Abingdon, Ock St remembered

J Hudson and E Drury, eds (Ock Street Heritage Group, 2008) A4, 44pp

This is a colourful, well illustrated and well written publication contributed to and supported by many local people, businesses and, of course, the Abingdon Museum and the Abingdon and Area Archaeological Historical Society. Across pages 2 and 3 the 1912 Ordnance Survey map of the area sets the scene, and under paragraph headings such as The Clock House and Early history, Local trades, Fairs, Religion, The wars, the reader is led through each topic. A fascinating read, full of illustrations and facts about the social and local history of this part of the town.
