More about this scene

Adderbury, south of Banbury, evolved as a result of the wool trade. Lord Montagu, William of Orange's minister, lived here at one time. The sturdy spire of St Mary's church is visible for miles around. Note the old Hovis sign just below it.

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

My family lived in The Lodge (house on far right of picture) for about 47 years. The Lodge is the gatehouse to the mansion called Adderbury House which became a home for elderly after the 2nd World War. The two pubs you can see are The Red Lion (still exists) and The Wheatsheaf which is now a house.
