Bradshaw’s Guide

Shipton

4 miles south is the old town of Burford, full of quaint houses, with paneled gables and tracery work. The church is cruciform, with several large chapels attached, all partaking of the Norman or early perpendicular character. A battle took place here in 752 between the rival Kings of Wessex and Mercia. Three miles on the Northleach road is Lord Dynevor’s elegant mansion at Barrington.
