Shipston Heritage Centre
A History of Wool and Sheep in Shipston-on-Stour and the Cotswolds
If you are interested in wool, sheep and how they have influenced Shipston-on-Stour’s heritage and the history of the area, then do come and visit the Shipston Heritage Centre. This small pop-up heritage centre is in the front of the Post Office on Shipston High Street and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm on Monday to Friday and 10am to 12 noon on Saturdays. (We’ll try to be open for all those hours, but as we are staffed by volunteers, there may be the odd occasion where we are not open.)
The address is: Shipston Post Office, 9, High Street, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, CV36 4AB.
The Shipston Heritage Centre opened at the Shipston Wool Fair on the 26th May 2014. The centre was opened by TV Historian Bryan McNerney, who talked about how important it is for communities to remember heritage.
