20 Walks in Shipston Country

This new 96-page guidebook has just been published for the exclusive benefit of Shipston Home Nursing. It has been compiled by Peter Titchmarsh in memory of his wife, Janet. It is also his way of thanking all the staff of SHN for the many months of loving care that they gave her.

Centred on Shipston, this guidebook describes twenty walks in a wide swath of countryside between Stratford, Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Norton and Banbury. Varying in length between two and ten miles these walks each start, with one exception, from an inn, although being circular, they can be started and finished at any point.

This guide also contains an interesting forty-page section describing the towns, villages and other places of interest in our lovely ‘Shipston country’. For this reason it can also be enjoyed by motorists and cyclists exploring the area.

Peter has lived in this part of the world almost all his life and his love of its countryside, and its towns and villages is revealed on almost every page. For many years this love was shared with his wife, Janet, and she appears on the cover and on a number of pages within.

Priced at £6, Walks in Shipston Country, with its twenty maps and ninety colourful illustrations, is available from Waterstones in Stratford –upon- Avon, all the pubs mentioned in the book and Rebecca 01608 674929.Do visit our website for more information.


This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
