Introduction to The Wychwoods Local History Society Journal No 25
When the first Journal appeared in 1985 the then chairman, Jack Howard-Drake, commented that the first issue represented no more than a modest beginning but with the work continuing there was hope that further results would be published from time to time.
This issue is the twenty-fifth journal of Wychwoods History and the Society can be congratulated on this achievement. The research carried out by members has been wide-ranging and in each Journal we have tried to have a mixture of the academic and the general.
This edition perhaps inclines toward the academic with three of the articles representing subjects that the Society has long wished to report: a building survey of the Shaven Crown Inn; an examination of the accounts books of the Crown Inn Charity, its former name; and a study of Shipton in the Hundred Rolls 1279-80.
On the boundary of Shipton and Ascott, by Coldwell Brook, is a house theoretically in Shipton but seemingly part of Ascott. An article explains this anomaly.
The article about the stolen clappers of the bells of Shipton Church 1s a connection to our first Journal when we reproduced on page 31 the poster headlined ‘Sacrilege!’ Many entering the church probably do not notice the little figures in the niches above the porch, here explained as an Annunciation Relief.
And we have an appreciation of the enormous amount the Scott family have contributed to the Wychwood villages since 1937.
