Trivia section moved here[edit]

Trivia are by definition not encyclopædic so I deleted them from the article. It does seem to me, however, that some of this stuff is not at all trivial and could be properly incorporatd within the article proper. So I am moving the section here:

Old trivia section[edit]

  • Shrivenham station was the site of railway accident in January 1936, when an express from Penzance ran into some coal wagons that had become detached from an earlier train just outside the station.
  • The Automobile Association reports the driving time to Swindon as about 15 minutes, and the driving time to Oxford as about 35-40 minutes.
  • A common element of confusion is that Shrivenham has the Swindon postal code and Swindon telephone area code, despite being located in a different county Oxfordshire rather than Wiltshire.
  • HMS Shrivenham was a Ham class minesweeper.

i think that the triva section was an integeral part of the shrivenham page and more trivia should be added.84.64.192.141 20:27, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
