    6 Quirky Facts About Bicester

    1. In the beginning…
      The original settlement dates back to 643AD. Bicester was built on the crossroads of two major Roman routes connecting Roman fortresses.
    2. Name Game
      The onomatology of ‘Bicester’ throws up a few quirks. The Latin translation means “two forts’ (bi cester). A map dated to 1610 shows four different spellings of the name and wills from the 17th and 18th century give 45 different spellings. And for those new to the area, it is pronounced the same as ‘Mister’, not ‘bi-chester’ as many visitors believe.
    3. Conquered
      In 1086 William the Conqueror created the Domesday Book as a means of measuring the wealth of towns in order to collect taxes. Bicester was recorded as having 28 villagers, 14 smallholders, 5 slaves, 12 acres of meadow, 1 woodland, 2 mills and an annual value of 16 pounds.
    4. Military Standing
      The area is rich in military history. As ever, the first to create defendable fortified positions were the Romans who had a number of forts in the area. The English Civil War saw the arrival of the Parliamentarians who made Bicester the headquarters of their forces. In 1793 the lord of the manor John Coker created a local militia in answer to the very real threat of French invasion by Napoleon’s troops. This was bolstered by Oxford University who created a regiment with John Coker as its (elected) Colonel. This force consisted of 60 privates and 6 officers. The regiment more than doubled in size after Napoleon’s second rise to power. During the First World War the Royal Flying Corps established an air base just outside the town.
    5. Garden City
      In 2014 Bicester became a ‘Garden City’ bringing with it the growth of an extra 13,000 homes. This has also increased services, businesses and employment in the area.
    6. Bicester Village
      Today the town is best known for the retail shopping village. Consisting of 160 stores, it is a shopping paradise featuring designer names at outlet prices. Homeware, kitchenware, jewellery, clothes, shoes, sportswear, chocolate with plenty of parking and a food hall.

    Thank You Over’s

    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.
