A request has been received from Skanska on behalf of Thames Water for a temporary road closure to apply to a section of Adderbury, Tanners Lane & The Leys whilst essential service pipe replacement works are carried out.

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is being made to implement the temporary closure and will operate from 22 May 2017 for approximately 9 weeks.  The works will be carried out in 3 phases to lessen the impact on local residents.

‘Adderbury Wheels’

We had a lovely ride last Wednesday meeting outside the library from 6.30 pm. A “reverse” along the tow path from Banbury to home so only one “little” hill to climb up Twyford wharf. Plus got to see all the fluffy baby ducklings !! ah!. Started off just after the massive hail stones storm but it then cleared up to golden spring evening sunshine during the ride.

In 1995 Adderbury celebrated what it believed to be its 1,000 year anniversary, however, 6 months’ ago that assumed history changed due the results of a geophysical survey of the Milton Road North housing development land. The survey discovered enough evidence to suggest that Adderbury was a substantial settlement in 3,000 BC to 2,000 BC, a period that covers the Neolithic Age to the dawn of the early Bronze Age.
