Shiplake is a parish of approximately 700 homes located in South Oxfordshire, two miles south of Henley on Thames. It extends from the banks of the river Thames across the A4155 up to its boundaries with Binfield Heath Parish and Harpsden Parish.
The oldest part of the parish is the area known as the village of Shiplake Cross close to the 800 year old parish church of St Peter & Paul, Shiplake College, the local primary school and the Plowden Arms pub. The majority of homes are however located at the other end of the parish close to the railway station, corner shop, butcher, garage and Baskerville Arms pub which is known as the village of Lower Shiplake.
More about the parish is also available on the web site: http://www.shiplake.net/

Parking in Lower Shiplake -
The experimental parking plan (which can be seen by clicking the following link. Experimental Parking Plan ) is now in place. Unlike a permanent order, an experimental order can only stay in force for a maximum of 18 months while it's impact is monitored and assessed (and changes made if necessary), before the Council decides whether or not to continue it on a permanent basis. It is not possible to lodge a formal objection to an experimental traffic regulation order until it is in force. Once it is in force, objections may be made to the order being made permanent and these must be made within six months of the day that the experimental order comes into force.
