Banbury is a historic market town on the River Cherwell in Oxfordshire, located 22 miles north of Oxford. The town is famed for Banbury cakes that are an oval shape, similar to Eccles cakes. The filling typically includes currants, mixed peel, brown sugar, rose water, rum, and nutmeg.
The name Banbury comes from ‘Banna’, a Saxon chieftain who supposedly built a stockade in the 6th century and appears Domesday Book. Banbury stands at the junction of 2 ancient roads- Salt Way, used as a bridle path primarily to transport salt; and Banbury Lane beginning near Northampton. The medieval prosperity of the area was from wool production.
Banbury had an important part in to play in the English Civil War, as a base for Oliver Cromwell. He reputedly planned the battle of Edge Hill in the back room of the Reindeer Inn, now known as the Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn. Banbury Castle, built in 1135, was manned by Royalist Soldiers, yet the towns inhabitants were Puritan. This castle was demolished after the war.
The Oxford Canal is a popular tourism location and pleasure boat travel for weekends and holidays can be completed along its length. This was previously the main trade artery between London and the Midlands.
Some of the pests we deal with:
|Rats||You may see rats during daylight hours but they prefer to operate at night.|
|Ants||Worker ants will frequently enter dwellings foraging for food, particularly sweet substances.|
|Cockroaches||Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal so they are more likely to be seen at night.|
|Squirrels||The most common complaint about Squirrels is when they take residence in a loft space.|
|Mice||You may see, hear or smell a mouse problem or see other evidence such as burrowing in insulation or soil.|
|Wasps||Wasps are aggressive and will sting readily if they think the nest is in danger.|
