Spiceball Country Park is a beautiful green space and the largest park in Banbury which has the canal and the River Cherwell running through it.
There is plenty to see and do in the park, from exploring the meadows and woodlands, pleasant walks along the towpath and riverside and as well as a picnic area. You will also find plenty to entertain the kids including a children’s play area and skate ramps. The history of the park dates back to the 1880’s when Thomas Hankinson, who became Banbury town mayor in 1894, donated an initial plot of land to the town so that the ‘poor of Banbury’ could have a recreational facility.
A well-known name in the town due to Hankinson’s Butchers that traded in Banbury High Street, and was renowned for their hand-made faggots, affectionately known as ‘spice balls’.
