Shipston on Stour
Shipston-on-Stour is a town and civil parish on the River Stour about 10mi south of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire close to the boundaries with Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. It is known for being a historic town in England and got its name from "Sheep wash town" which it was known for as sheep would be passed through the town before traveling to market.HistoryIn the 8th century the Toponym was Scepwaeisctune, Old English for Sheep-wash-Town, as it was once an important sheep market. The name evolved through Scepwestun in the 11th century, Sipestone, Sepwestun and Schipton in the 13th century and Sepestonon-Sture in the 14th century.The Church of England parish church of Saint Edmund has a 15th-century tower. The Gothic Revival architect G.E. Street rebuilt the rest of the church in 1855. The tower had a ring of five bells until 1695 when they were recast and rehung as a ring of six. Since then all the bells have been recast and rehung from time to time, notably in 1754 and by John Taylor & Co. in 1979.Add Shipston on Stour and other destinations in United Kingdom to your travel itinerary using our United Kingdom visit website.
