Historical Description

The neat little market town of Shipton-upon-Stour, Which is situated 85 miles from London, in the parish of Tredington, to which it is a chapelry. Here was formerly a shag manufactory, established by a gentleman of the name of Hart; it has long however fallen to decay. The river Stour, from which this town derives its distinguishing name, flows to the east, and for some miles forms the eastern boundary of this long and narrow insulated portion of Worcestershire. Shipston has a large weekly market upon Friday; and two annual fairs upon the 22nd of June, and the Tuesday which occurs next after the 10th of October.

Topography of Great Britain, written: 1802-29 by George Alexander Cooke

SHIPSTON-ON-STOUR is a small market and union town and head of a county court district, on the Birmingham and Oxford road, with a terminal station on a branch (single) line from Moreton-in-the-Marsh, Great Western railway, completed in 1889, 6 miles south-west from Ettington station, on the East and West Junction railway, 28 from Oxford, 32 from Birmingham, 32 east from Worcester, 17 south-by-west from Warwick, 7 north-east from Moreton-in-the-Marsh, and 82 from London. This place, together with Tidmington, formerly constituted a detached portion of the upper division of Oswaldslow hundred, but is now in the Blockley division of Kineton hundred, Southern division of the county, petty sessional division of Blockley, rural deanery of South Kineton, and archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester. The parish is watered by the river Stour, which divides it from Warwickshire on the east. The town is lighted with gas by a company. Shipston, at one time a township in the parish of Tredington, was separated from it by an Act 12 George I. (1726) and made a distinct parish. The church of St. Edmund, rebuilt, with the exception of the tower, in 1855, is a building of stone in the Pointed style, consisting of nave, aisles, north and south porches, and an embattled western tower with pinnacles, containing a clock and 6 bells: a stained east window and a new organ were erected in 1881—2 at a total cost of £510: there are 840 sittings, 400 being free. The register dates from the year 1572. The living is a rectory, with the chapelry of Tidmington annexed, joint net yearly value £410, including 45 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Worcester for one turn, and the Principal and Fellows of Jesus College, Oxford, for two turns, and held since 1896 by the Rev. Daniel Lloyd M.A. of Jesus College, Oxford.

Here is a Baptist chapel, built in 1867 and seating 150 persons, a Wesleyan Methodist chapel, built in 1880 with 200 sittings, and a Meeting House for the Society of Friends, seating 60 persons. There is a cemetery of 2 acres formed at a cost of £2,000, and consecrated on the 5th April, 1865; it includes two mortuary chapels, with a lofty spire between them and a sexton’s lodge, erected from the designs of Mr. W. H. Knight, architect, of Cheltenham; the cemetery is under the control of a Burial committee of the parish council.

The Shipston-on-Stour Dairy Society Limited have a creamery here, established in 1892, and a considerable trade is carried on in butter. The market is on Saturday, but the attendance is small; there is a monthly cattle fair, but the principal fairs in the year are held on the third Tuesday in April, June 22nd, Tuesday after October 10th and the first Tuesday in December. The October fair is called “bull Toast,” from an ox being roasted in the market place at that time and at this fair servants are hired. Charities:-In 1706 John Pittway bequeathed property, now producing £76 12s. 2d. yearly, for teaching, apprenticing and partly clothing six poor boys: and in 1747 George Marshall bequeathed South Sea stock, producing £42 7s. yearly, for teaching boys and girls. The moneys received from Marshalls, charities for educational purposes are now administered under a scheme framed by the Charity Commissioners, and are applied mainly in providing scholarships at the Board schools; part of the fund is also used to provide religious teaching for the children attending the Board schools. There are several small bequests distributed among the poor of the town. Edward Vere Nicol esq. left £600, in 1891, for the benefit of the poor, at the discretion of the vicar and churchwardens. The Ecclesiastical Commissioners, who are lords of the manor, and Frederick Townsend esq. M.A., F.L.S. of Honington Hall, Warwickshire, are the principal landowners. The soil is clayey, lying upon a substratum of blue lias, containing numerous fossil shells, nautili, cornua ammonis &c. The area is 1,155 acres; rateable value £5,662; the population in 1891 was 1,646, including 4 officers and 140 inmates in the workhouse.
