     The famous Banbury Cross is situated at a cross-roads on the broad Horsefair, is a mid-19th century replacement, erected to commemorate a royal wedding in 1858. The original medieval cross was destroyed by the Puritans in the early 17th century. The well-known nursery rhyme refers to the cross - ' Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross to see a fine lady on a white horse'. It is thought this rhyme referred to a visit by Queen Elizabeth I.
