Oxfordshire's boundaries form a very irregular shape. The centre of the county is just seven miles from Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, yet the northern part of Oxfordshire sees its diameter being 38 miles and its greatest length being 48 miles. Oxfordshire has five principle rivers, being the Thame, Isis, Cherwell, Evenlode and Windrush. The confluence of the Thame and the Isis form the River Thames. The principle manufacturing industries of Oxfordshire have included blankets at Witney, shag at Banbury, and gloves and polished steel at Woodstock. Other industries included lace making and woolspinning. Entering the second millennium, Oxfordshire is gaining a reputation for high-tech business and state-of-the-art science, earning Oxford the new name of The Silicon Spires, in addition to its traditional name of The Dreaming Spires. The county also has a strong agricultural background including cattle and sheep farming, and crops including corn, grass, and in the latter part of the 20th century rapeseed oil and linen.
