Shrivenham Methodist Church
Shrivenham is a large village and civil parish in Oxfordshire, England. It is historically part of Berkshire, and is close to the border with Wiltshire. It is located in the Vale of White Horse, between Swindon and Faringdon.
The Vale of White Horse is a local government district of Oxfordshire in England. The main town is Abingdon, other places include Faringdon and Wantage. There are 68 parishes within the district.
It is a geographically distinct region, lying between the Berkshire Downs and the River Thames, named after the prehistoric Uffington White Horse. The district was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, from the Municipal Borough of Abingdon, Wantage Urban District, Abingdon Rural District, Faringdon Rural District and part of the Wantage Rural District of Berkshire. The southern border of the district roughly approximates the Ridgeway Path. The area is often referred to as the ‘Vale of the White Horse’.
Historically, Shrivenham is part of the Shrivenham Hundred which contained Ashbury, Buscot, Coleshill, Compton Beauchamp, Eaton Hastings, Longcot, Shrivenham, and Uffington. After the 19th century, Hundreds effectively ceased to function, although they have not been abolished. The village used to have a railway station, and the Wilts & Berks Canal passed between it and the village.
