OA carried out a programme of building recording works at the Grapes Public house in Abingdon. The recording was in the form of a watching brief during a refurbishment at the pub particularly during works to expose two ground floor piers. The main pier was found to be constructed of good quality dressed stone with clearly defined quoins. One of the quoins had a groove cut in the corner which probably housed a window frame. The other quoin is likely to be one end of cross-passage through the original (possibly 14th century) house, which had previously been identified by JM Steane, The other pier was of uncoursed rubble stone.
