Banbury and Banbury Museum

Saturday 12th August, an all-day visit to Banbury, with Sarah Gray
To local historians the archetypal market town, the ‘metropolis of the carrier’s cart’. 

Banbury outingNo coach but public transport is good and anybody stuck for a lift should contact Sarah Gray .  We will base ourselves at Banbury Museum & Gallery, right next to the South Oxford Canal and Tooley’s Boatyard, the oldest yard still working on the Canal since 1778.

We will meet at the Museum at 10.30am for coffee before an introductory talk and a morning visit to Tooley’s Boatyard. Then we will look round the Museum galleries before lunch, either a picnic or the museum cafe. Then an afternoon walk round Banbury and St Mary’s church before free time from 3pm.

Maximum numbers 25 and we will need to charge £10 for museum and speakers’ costs.
