More about this scene


Caption for Abingdon, St Helen's Church c1955: Just beyond the west tip of Nag's Head Island is the Malthouse (creeper-clad) and Fairlawn Wharf to the right, now housing and formerly warehouses and barns. The Malthouse is medieval; in its Abingdon Abbey days it was the dyehouse, becoming a malthouse after about 1700. Sold in 1899 to an Abingdon solicitor, it was converted into a house - the fine stone medieval- looking oriel overlooking the river was added then. The barns and warehouses are more recent conversions. The Malthouse is now the offices of an architectural practice.
