    7 Quickfire Abingdon Facts

    1. Great Escape
      Abingdon’s Old Gaol was actually built in 1811 using prisoners for labour. Had the authorities never heard the words “secret trap door”?!?
    2. Fast Car
      The town was the home of MG motors. The funky little 2-seater sports cars that are still highly collectable were made in the town and it remains a mecca for MG enthusiasts and the starting point for rallies and driving clubs.
    3. How Rude!
      In his 1889 novel Three Men in a Boat, Jerome K Jerome wrote, “Abingdon is a typical country town of the smaller order — quiet, eminently respectable, clean, and desperately dull.” Little did he know…
    4. Abbey Ever After
      The town’s priory has a very colourful past, starting with the Abbot in the 13th century who ran off and married a nun from the nearby priory.
    5. Cow Dare You!
      In 1310 the townsfolk fell out with the Abbey over grazing rights on the common land, which the Abbot had taken control of. As a solution they nicked all his cows!
    6. Fiiiiiight!
      On the 20th of April 1327 it all kicked off again. Unhappy with the Abbey’s heavy taxes and monks living the high-life at their expense, the peasants revolted. During a town meeting things heated up, the townsfolk threatened to storm the Abbey the following night. The monks got wind of their plans and prepared for battle, “Certain men sallied out of the gate and violently falling on the malefactors, killed two of them and put the rest to flight. They took a number of men, all of which they put in the Abbey prison”.
    7. Rematch
      A few nights later, reinforced by the Mayor of Oxford and an even larger rabble, the mob attacked the Abbey, burnt down all their houses and freed the prisoners, killing several monks. The rest fled and hid while the Abbey was ransacked. The Abbot ran off to King Edward III and returned with armed troops who captured 80 rioters and hung 12 of them! Less than 100 years later the town attacked the Abbey again. Can’t you all just play nicely?!?

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.
