Barrington Arms Hotel and Posting House, Shrivenham

The Barrington Arms is situated in the centre of the village and by it's size it has probably dominated the main street for centuries. We have various photographs from the early 20th century onwards but as yet we have no sketches or depictions of it any earlier. Shrivenham Heritage Society has carried carried out research using Barrington documents and the Newspaper Archive and have a general history, mainly of the landlords, from the early 17th century to the outbreak of World War II.
