Elm Tree House, High St, Shrivenham

Elm Tree House is a fine early Georgian dwelling, built around 1710, displaying many original features from the 18th century. It occupies a prominent position within the village high street and overlooked what was historically the Village Green and Pond. 

In 2019 a team from the Oxfordshire Buildings Record asked the owners of Elm Tree House, Diana and Tony Crockett, if they might examine their house in great detail in order to produce a report for the historical record. A copy of that report was kindly donated to Shrivenham Heritage Society and is available to view on request at the Heritage Centre.

This Listing is made up of the numerous photographs that we have of the house, some donated by Diana Crockett. Click on the picture to open up more information.
