Shrivenham is a large village in Oxfordshire, England. It was once part of Berkshire, and is close to the border with Wiltshire.
With a population of about 2,400, Shrivenham is a thriving village with many thatched cottages, stone walls, an ancient pump and a Norman church. Each year, the village hosts the Shrivenham Village Fete, which has been an annual event for 25 years. Shrivenham has been the site of UK military colleges since 1946 when the Royal Military College of Science (RMCS) was established on the Beckett estate. This college is part of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom.
The village has grown considerably since the 1940s in both area and population but much evidence still remains today of the rich history of Shrivenham, one of Oxfordshire's oldest rural villages.
