Situated on the banks of the River Cherwell, Banbury is a market town in the county of Oxfordshire. A nursery rhyme, 'Ride a Cock Horse', has made Banbury one of the best-known towns in England. It has been suggested that the 'Fine Lady' of the nursery rhyme may have been Lady Godiva or Elizabeth I.
In the 13th century Banbury became an important wool trading centre bringing wealth to the local population. In 1628 the town was ravaged by fire which destroyed many buildings, though some have survived to the present day.
Today, Banbury's main industries are car components, electrical goods, plastics, food processing, and printing. Banbury is home to the world's largest coffee-processing facility (Kraft Foods), built in 1964. The town is famed for Banbury cakes – similar to Eccles cakes but oval in shape. Banbury boasts three golf courses, Tadmarton Heath Golf Club, Banbury Golf Club and Rye Hill Golf Club.
