Sunday 6th June BANBURY and BROUGHTON CASTLE and GARDENS

We travel to Banbury a charming market town on the River Cherwell set on the edge of the Cotswolds.  An impressive bronze statue of the ‘Fine Lady’ from the famous ‘Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross’ nursery rhyme is set close to the Banbury Cross.  Other points of interest include the Market Place, the St Mary’s parish church, the atmospheric lanes and streets of the Old Town and the Castle Quay shopping mall with the town’s Museum set directly beside the Oxford Canal.  There are a great range of shops and places for refreshments, why not try a Banbury Cake, a local delicacy.  This afternoon we continue to the intriguing Broughton Castle a moated and fortified manor house set in parkland and built of the rich local Hornton ironstone.  It is home to the 21st Lord and Lady Saye and Sele, whose family name is Fiennes and have owned the Castle since 1447.  The gardens, which are surrounded by a three-acre moat have long mixed shrub, rose and herbaceous borders together with a formal walled garden containing many varieties of old roses.  The tearoom offers light refreshments and there is a small gift shop in the area of the coach park.
