Abingdon Abbey was founded in the late seventh century in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The buildings are grade I listed and are a monument with significant historical status. This means that they are regarded to be ‘nationally important’.
The works carried out were restoration to all buildings to bring them back to life to their former glory. This is to achieve the goal of making the buildings more accessible to the public so more people can appreciate these buildings. The works should make the buildings usable all year round and will be the centre hub for the community of Abingdon-on-Thames. The friends hope that by doing this it will increase visitor numbers and attract a more diverse audience which would then benefit the local community further.
