The walk tours the 1556 boundary of Abingdon, stopping frequently for historical talks and "Town crying" by the Town Crier to wake up and motivate everyone for the new year! It passes numerous historical points, each marked as Waypoints which are where the guide gives a historical talk and the Town Crier sounds, This walk can of course be attempted any time of the year!
