The Fair has been running since 1970 and has a fantastic reputation. Some history of the buildings, at the time of its dissolution, the Benedictine Abbey of St Mary at Abingdon was the sixth wealthiest monastery in England. The Abbey was a vast complex of buildings, courtyards, gardens and orchards. The two groups of buildings which survive are only a small fragment of this once grand establishment. The Abbey Gateway faces the Market Place and is flanked by St Nicolas Church and the former St John’s Hospital. These are now part of the Guild Hall under the care of Abingdon Town Council.
