More about this scene

Caption for Abingdon, the Old Mill c1955: The Abbey Brewery, which occupied many of the buildings in the left-hand distance, closed in 1895, and the watermill became Langford's Coal and Corn Merchants. In this view the mill had only a couple of years left as a corn mill; the buildings on the right were cleared away in the 1960s, along with the carpet factory (originally a Victorian hemp and twine works), and were replaced by the Upper Reaches Hotel. The site of the houses on the right is now part of the hotel car park.
