Banbury Cross, UK

During our trip to Europe in 1991, one of my "musts" was to see the Banbury Cross. Their web site has a good picture of it here. Here's the wikipedia article and here's their webcam. Here's my photo of the cross.

I guess my fascination with Banbury comes from the nursery rhyme:
Ride A Cock Horse To Banbury Cross
To See a Fine Lady Upon a White Horse
With Rings on Her Fingers And Bells on Her Toes
She shall have Music Wherever She Goes.
I'll let you do your own reading on the history of the cross.
