History

Shrewton has a history going back in time to at least when Stonehenge was built and the tumuli were bare chalk mounds. The population has grown and shrunk, houses been built and washed away in floods, businesses established and changed to meet the needs of the day.

The articles here give glimpses into that past, of some of the people who have lived here and the buildings that make up the parish.

We hope you find them interesting and, should you have something new to add, be willing to share that with us.
