Shipston-on-Stour is a small Warwickshire market town about 8 miles south of
Stratford-upon-Avon. The name "Shipston" was originally "Sheep-wash-town" and as is implied by
the name, the town was an important sheep-market town for many years. In 1836 a branch line
from the horse-powered tramway, built a few years before to link Stratford with Moreton-in-Marsh,
was opened and enabled the town to continue to flourish as the demand for wool waned. Shipston
was also an important coaching town.

Shipston-on-Stour, Church Street
An undated postcard of the Red Lion and the Stour Garage. Note the
"Flowers Ale" sign on the "Red Lion" - Flowers Ale was brewed at
the brewery on the Birmingham Road in Stratford-upon-Avon until
the early 1960s.
This postcard was mailed in 1954, but the photograph from which it
was taken appears to be earlier, possibly pre-war.
