This is a fascinating c17th building, which is really the symbol of Abingdon. Unfortunately, both it, and the museum were closed under the COVID -19, and have yet to reopen.

This picturesque Wren designed Building is about all that remains of 17th and 18th Century Abingdon.Facing onto the notorious 'market square'I would advise extreme caution when traversing the narrow labyrinth of streets that flank this building in its approaches.ie Shopping Precinct,backs of The shopping precinct,alleyways and little roads past pubs.Especially around 11am to 4pm Unexpected things out of the blue can happen.The Building contains a small museum but is not always open.Numbers of civic minded visitors have declined in recent years.Theres a little frequented cafe in the basement and another cafe called Throwing Buns opposite and within sight a Costa ,Java and another cafe. There are also numerous pubs open all day.I would not advise entering any one these.The whole little area is in constant uproar and there have been numerous unsavoury 'incidents'of anti social behaviuor and worse every few yards.At least 10 people spring to mind with 3 of those having CBOs on them barring from even entering the town for 3 years!fortunately the shop window smashing spree has diminished somewhat but expect large gangs of rowdy youths on bikes making a din during school holidays and especially on Saturday afternoon.

The Museum is well laid out with some interesting exhibits, covering a long history. Kids enjoyed it too. look up the history of the 'Throwing Buns'!

We stopped at Abingdon on our way to Oxford. Looking for a light lunch and something to while away an hour and stretch our legs. With a generous 2 hour free parking in the centre we had a wander around and found the County Hall Museum. Plenty of stairs up onto the roof, unfortunately the nasty weather precluded a visit to the outside roof top. Still plenty to interest us. I was much taken by the last MG built in Abingdon. Nice chap I assume to be a volunteer to offer his take on the museum and it's display. Then found the cafe in the basement for our light lunch.
