    5 Quickfire Banbury Facts

    1. In the Beginning…
      Banbury gets its name from Banna’s burgh. Banna was a Saxon chieftain, and a burgh was a form of stockade or defensive settlement. The earliest signs of life date back to the Iron Age with evidence of circular buildings dating back to 200BC. The town was also occupied during the Roma era. Both the Saxons and Vikings took up residency in later years. Today the occupying forces are mostly coffee shops.
    2. Banbury Castle
      Banbury Castle was built in 1135 by the Bishop of Lincoln, although King Stephen did briefly confiscate it before giving back “Ok, you can have your castle back but only if you promise to play nicely!”.
    3. Uncivil
      The castle became a focal point during the English Civil War. In 1642 it was garrisoned by Parliamentarian forces until a detachment of Royalist troops attacked the castle capturing over 1,500 guns. Cromwell’s men came back and laid siege to the castle which 18 yr old Captain William Compton managed to fight off from July to October of 1644 when his big brother James arrived and relieved him. Within two years the Parliamentarians were back again, this time with 3,000 troops. The castle managed to survive for 5 months until eventually the 300 men inside were forced to surrender as the King was clearly losing the war. A few years later he lost his head.
    4. Gunpowder Plot
      The real reason for the castle’s importance during the Civil War was its strategic position, as it protected Saltpetre mines that were used to make gunpowder which both sides were keen to lay their hands on. After the castle switched hands for the final time, Cromwell’s troops used the same powder to blow the castle up.
    5. Banbury Mutiny
      One last civil footnote, towards the end of the war Parliament’s troops, who were conscripted and forced to fight, realised they weren’t getting a great deal. Replacing a king with a group of rich, privileged lords who weren’t making life any better for the common man. And to add insult to injury the troops wages hadn’t been paid. Soon the Levellers movement spread, demanding level rights for all men. Having helped capture the castle, 400 soldiers marched off to protest their rights. Cromwell promised not to attack them if they agreed to talk, then launched a surprise attack that night, killing many of his own troops before hanging a few more the following day, because he was a cheery kind of guy.

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.
