Shilton is a small village between Burford and Carterton in West Oxfordshire. It is quite tucked away just off the main road but is well worth a visit. A quick walk around reveals a shallow pond and ford across the stream which is almost Constable-esque. Close by there is also a handsome village pub. Walking further you might come across the Old Manor House at the top of the hill and, continuing on, the church and vicarage. A footpath leads across the churchyard, over a stone stile and then there are some great views across the countryside towards Alvescot and a string of picturesque villages on the way to Lechlade.
I stood for a while and drew the view from the stile…
… and my finished drawing.
I hope to later turn this into another of my landscape paintings, but that is for another time.
