About Shipston (Evesham)
The small market town of Shipston-on-Stour is situated in South Warwickshire and ideally located for visitors to the North Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon. It is surrounded by places of interest including Chipping Campden, Broadway, and Moreton-in-Marsh.
Our Dogs Shop shop supports our local Rehoming Centre based in the nearby Evesham. Our shop has free parking and a little forecourt outside if you would like to drive up to visit or drop off any donations. We have such lovely supporters in the local town and surrounding are who allow us to carry on our good work.
The towns we are situated in was known in ancient times as 'Sheep-wash-Town'. Shipston was for a long time an important sheep market town and after the demand for local wool began to diminish the town continued to flourish thanks to the opening in 1836 of a branch line from the horse-powered tramway built a decade before to link Stratford with Moreton-in-Marsh. The line became a modern railway in 1889. The town was also an important coaching town and many of the inns from that era surviving in the area of the High Street. We have lots to do and see and our town is well worth a visit. All 4 legged friends are welcome to pop into our shop for a treat
Shipston today is a charming historic and thriving town with interesting and unusual features.. It is becoming increasingly popular with tourists due to its wonderful mixture of shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels.
We have a small team of local volunteers but would love to add some new faces to our Team if you would like to join us.
