Banbury in 1880 is seen as a substantial Victorian town spreading out into the surrounding field system from its mediaeval core with rows of terraced housing and a ring of gentlemensí residencies. The industrial revolution has made its impact with the coming of the railway benefitting the town with not one but two lines and stations. Industry is thriving with two large factories, the massive Britannia Agricultural Implements Works and a Tweed Manufactory to the northeast of the town. A smaller iron foundry is seen in the suburb of Neithrop, nearby is a brick, tile and pipe works. Overall Banbury appears to be a prosperous, settled and well ordered community but no doubt it is riddled with the well documented social and economic contradictions of the Victorian age, to the northwest of the town, well away from the town centre, is seen a large workhouse.
