The Workhouse Estate
We are a community of neighbours living on the Oxford, Abbott and Thesiger Roads, over the footprint of the Old Abingdon Workhouse and grounds. We came together as part of the Coronavirus Community Response offering each other help and support during lockdown. As well as support with day to day living, we have shared a flour hub, a cottage facemasks and scrubs industry, fundraising ideas, celebrations and creativity.
For Artweeks 2021, 20 households have created awesome, diverse and beautiful artwork in response to our theme and displayed it in front gardens as part of a mini arts trail, celebrating our connections as peoples, friends and families living 'under one sky' despite the social and physical distancing of lockdown.
Its a real must see!
