Shipston On Stour

Set on the banks of the gentle River Stour, which rises just 10 miles away, Shipston-on-Stour is a beautiful small market town.

Cattle once passed through here, following a network of ancient trackways that brought them from as far as Carmarthen in Wales, heading to London markets. Indeed, Shipston owes its existence as a town to its location near a number of long distance routes. Nearby is the Fosse Way, an old Roman road that linked Exeter to Lincoln. It passes within a mile of the town and is now a fast thoroughfare.

The town was also on the old stagecoach route that ran from Oxford to Birmingham, evidenced by the number of former coaching inns and hotels that are still in existence today. Shipston’s street plan, with its marketplace, courtyards and alleyways, dates back to medieval times. The town is a piece of living history, with a pretty mix of houses and shops in both local red brick and grey Cotswold stone.
