Shaw Cum Donnington
« on: Wednesday 14 October 09 22:30 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Was wondering if there was anyone on this site who could assist me to identify where a certain
property was around the 1850's.     The name was Shoredean Farm, Shaw Cun Donnington.

We will be travelling around Newbury area in the not too distant future, coming from Australia, we would love to have a greater knowledge of the area, before we leave, for all of our planning.

Regards

You are probably looking for Shaw Dene which was one of the farms between the old Oxford Road and the Hermitage Road. Access is off the Oxford Road, near to the Donnington Valley Hotel.

A search for Shaw Dene at www.streetmap.co.uk will find the house.

Newbury chap and Byng,
Sorry I've taken a while to answer, but we have been away, thanks for this information.

Wonder if you could give any recommendations for staying at Newbury, like a B & B book that may be available, or Pubs around the area at a reasonable price.

Newbury Chap, there is so much to see around the area now that we've got all this history on our New family.

Thanks for all of your assistance.

I can't really recommend accomodation in Newbury - not having had the need to use it. Byng's options are probably reasonable.

The Chieveley travel lodge is in the motorway services, not the most wonderful surroundings but easy to get to. 

Pilgrim's is not really in Donnington - which (in my book) begins a few hundred yards north, on the other side of the river Lambourn - but it's fairly convenient, and easy walk from the town and seems to have ample parking. 

The Bacon is in the town, very convenient, plenty of parking and one of my favourite bars - but almost certainly more expensive. The food is okay, typical of a pub chain, cheapish and plentiful rather than gourmet.

There are others, the Newbury Tourist Information Centre should be able to let you have details.
