This building was a public house which started life as the Weavers Arms and then changed to the Case is Altered. The well known pub sign featured a judge in wig and robes holding a quill. It is believed the name originated from a local court case. At the side was Monument Sreet, there was a monument situated right outside the pub which commemorated the fact there used to be a toll bar there called St Johns bar.The monument was taken down in the early part of the 19th Century. Attached to the wall on the left hand side of the pub was a doorway to a hovel which had a pony in it and next door in another hovel was a shoe repairer called Alf Turner.

Open Air Swimming Pool. Opened 1939 just before World War two. It was open during the war and the school children used it for lessons and the water wasn't heated. It was built to olympic size of 50m and 10 foot at the deep end. The land was donated by the Gillett banking family to the people of Banbury and it was designed by Sidney Hilton who was the Borough Surveyor. Fairbrothers ran the cafe which had an opulent fountain outside. Many Banbury residents remember being taught to swim by Mrs Harris.

This building was called The British School. It was built in the 2nd half of the 19th Century in Crouch Street. It had separate entrances with girls and boys carved above the gates. After it was a school it became an engineering company and went on to become a funeral parlor. During the 2nd world war it was the British Motor Boat company and was demolished in 1947.

In 1835 this buiding was built as a workhouse. This remained a workhouse until the 1940's.In the workhouse the men and women were seperated even if they were married. Tramps were seen walking down the Warwick road to call at St Johns church for food handouts. In the first world war it was evacuated and turned into a prisoner of war camp. During the second world war it war a forces recuperation hospital. The building was later used as National Health Hospital with maternity and geriatric facillities. Also in the grounds of the building were isolation facillities for TB and Scarlet fever in the 1940's and 1950's. The workhouse stigma lived on. It was demolished in late 1990's.

Not sure of the year - maybe early/mid 1950's. This photo was taken outside our house on Ruscote Ave. Each Thursday, the cows made the trip to or from the cattle market
