Shipton-under-Wychwood is a village in the Cotswolds, in the Evenlode valley in Oxfordshire. Shipton means sheep town, and the “under-Wychwood” part of its name comes from the fact that it used to be in the ancient Forest of Wychwood, so it was literally under the boughs of trees. Shipton-under-Wychwood is a traditional village that grew around the village green, and is in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is a monument to the seventeen members of the Townsend and Hedges families from the village who died in a fire on board the Cospatrick as they were emigrating to New Zealand in 1874. It is believed that the man who is credited with writing “Piers Plowman,” William Langland, was a tenant in the village, where he died around 1385.
