The historic north Oxfordshire town of Banbury is perhaps best known for the nursery rhyme:
Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a Fyne lady ride on a white horse.
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.
Today, Banbury is a thriving community. Its good road and rail links make it a popular business centre, which brings employment and prosperity to the whole Banburyshire area.
The Ride a Cock Horse nursery rhyme originated around 1760. The “Fyne” lady is reputed to be a member of the Fiennes family – ancestors of Lord Saye and Sele.
in the 16th century, Banbury had three crosses:
