|Spiceball Country Park, Banbury|

|OS grid reference:||SP 458 416|
|Nearest postcode:||OX16 3JJ|
|Usual work:||Coppicing, scrub clearance|
A country park close to the centre of Banbury. The park includes ponds,
and meadows which are cut once or twice a year. There are also numerous
areas of rough woodland and scrub.
Management at present mainly involves periodic cutting of the meadows by
contractors. In future it is hoped that coppicing of both the areas of
newly planted woodland and neglected coppice woodland will help increase biodiversity.
Take the A34 and M40 north. At Junction 11 follow the A422 towards
Banbury. Go straight on at the first roundabout and then right at the
second. Turn sharply left twice to end up in a free car park. The
country park is accessible through an underpass under the main road.
