History on a Plate

Heritage Open Day: Blue Plates, similar to the Blue Plaque scheme, will be displayed around the Town to commemorate establishments that sold food and drink and those who ran them. Some of these places no longer exist, so look for the plates in unexpected places. Over the years, buildings in Abingdon have changed their use as society and its needs have changed. Our Blue Plates are just a snapshot of some of the places that have now vanished, such as cafés and restaurants, or where the premises now do something different. Some were family-run shops like bakeries, or beer retailers. The plates recall the names of some of the people who ran them, too.
Sat 18 Sep:10.00 - 16.00. Sun 19 Sep:10.00 - 16.00. Free Entry.
Town Centre, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
