The Thame district of Buckinghamshire has its counterpart in my Flora of Oxfordshire, but in the plan adopted here for Bucks there is included a small piece of country which, belonging as it does to the Ray drainage, had a separate district No. 4 in my Flora of Oxford- shire, and belongs to the Cherwell basin. The villages of Banburyshire. As I soon found out, there’s more to explore in Lark Rise to Candleford country than Juniper Hill and Fringford. Nearby, a group of villages nestle in the crux between Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire in an area local historian and author Martin Greenwood calls “Banburyshire”.. The villages – all thatched roofs and narrow alleyways – shade.
