"You will search in vain on maps for the name 'Banburyshire'.
It is, however, a real area of countryside, whose villages have long looked to Banbury as their market town centre.
Most of Banburyshire falls within North Oxfordshire but the regional identity extends to parts of neighbouring Warwickshire and Northamptonshire."
