New hardback with dust jacket. RRP. 15.99. Brand new copy. pp. xii, 132. Banbury was laid out as a planned new town in the 12th century by Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln. It incorporated a market place and was protected by the second in a series of castles. His grant of a charter launched the town as a regional trading centre especially noted for livestock - in which respect it remained unchallenged until the dramatic closure of the Stockyard of Europe in 1998. Between those two events Banbury boasts a busy and eventful history. The author draws on earlier accounts, such as Beesley and Potts, but more so on his own extensive research into unpublished records, and the archaeological investigations, in this up-to-date and detailed exploration of the town's entire past. The Cross, for which Banbury is best known, was destroyed by Puritans in the 17th century and only restored by the Victorians. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear.
