The Cake & Cockhorse journal

Cake & Cockhorse was first published in 1959 and there have been 170 issues since then, with more than 500 articles on the history of Banbury and the surrounding area.

Cake & Cockhorse is a historical publication first published in 1959 and there have been 170 issues since then, with more than 500 articles on the history of Banbury and the surrounding areaThe journal which appears three times a year goes free to all our members and reflects every aspect of local history.  It provides opportunities for our members to share their thoughts or to publish the results of their own researches.

Recent articles have been on such subjects as the Victorian Poor in Neithrop (awarded a prize by the British Association for Local History), the sad life of the second Earl of Downe (whose tomb is in Wroxton church), a Victorian recipe book and the pre-enclosure farming of Somerton.  Cake & Cockhorse is the place to start if you are thinking of researching a particular locality.  It is always good to find out if any work has previously been done..

Cake & Cockhorse is edited by Chris Day, 37 Gaveston Gardens, Hempton Road, Deddington, Oxon OX15 0NX, (Chris Day<dotandcom@gmail.com>).   He will be delighted to hear of any likely contributions to the journal and will be happy to discuss possible projects and their format.

Volumes One to Fifteen can be accessed online: the index to all the articles September 1959 – Summer 2013 here
