Description

Pretty thatched cottages in Main Street, Fringford

The novelist Flora Thompson spent her childhood and early life in Fringford and the nearby hamlets of Juniper Hill and Cottisford which are a little to the north of Fringford. In her trilogy Lark Rise to Candleford she recalls her childhood in Juniper Hill (Lark Rise) and at school in Cottisford (Fordlow) before moving to Fringford (Candleford Green) where she worked in the village post office from 1891 to 1897. Her fictitious town of Candleford is thought to be a combination of the nearby towns Banbury, Bicester and Buckingham.
