Shippon is just a stone's throw to the west of Abingdon, and on its doorstep is Dalton Barracks, the former RAF Abingdon air station.

There are remnants of the old village around the parish church, the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, but the ugly housing provided by the Ministry of Defence for its forces really dominates the village.

St. Mary's Church was built in 1855 of stone in 14th-century style from the designs of Sir Gilbert Scott. It consists of chancel, nave, north porch and western turret with spire.
