Wroxton – thatched church and an old guide post

Driving up to Mum and Dad’s on Saturday, I left the motorway at Banbury and took the old road to Stratford. Wroxton is a village a few miles west of Banbury full of thatched cottages.

It has a small Catholic Church, reputed to be one of only eight in the country with a thatched roof.

At the west end of the village there is an old Guide Post on the North Newington Road. Hands on the post point out the way to Banbury, Stratford and London.

Keeping on the thatching theme even the Duck House in the village pond is thatched!

The mainly 14th Century All Saints Church built in the local ‘Ironstone’.
