Photographer's Note

Ride a croc horse to Banbury cross.. A nursery Rhyme that many of us may know from our "earlier" years.

This statue was erected near the current Banbury Cross in 2006.. Its a shining example of modern art.

The nursery rhyme, a favourite with children throughout the English-speaking world, was first seen in print in the year 1784, although it was known in its current form in at least 1760. The "Fyne" lady is generally thought to be a member of the Fiennes family, ancestors of Lord Saye and Sele who owns nearby Broughton Castle.
