A lot of things have changed in Banbury in recent decades as the town adapts to the pressing requirements of the modern world. A closer look though reveals fascinating remnants of a long and colourful past; some prominent but with secrets to reveal, some hidden, secrets in themselves, and some, almost lost in the mists of time.
