Training in Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire

Last week, we were training on customer premises in Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire on the counterbalance truck.

The name of the town, which is on the northern edge of the Cotswolds, derives from being known in ancient times as ‘Sheep Wash Town’.  Shipston was for a time an important sheep market town and after the demand for local wool began to diminish the town continued to flourish thanks to the opening in 1836 of a branch line from the horse powered tramway that linked Stratford with Moreton in Marsh.  The line became a modern railway in 1889.  The town was also an important coaching town and many of the inns from that era are still surviving in the High Street.

We were also providing training on the reach truck last week at our training centre near Banbury.
