Shillington Village

Shillington Village has grown around the church, which has stood on the hill for thousand or so years.

The Village has a distinctive shape made up of 5 'ends' or hamlets. Located at the NE end of the Chiltern Hills, part of the parish lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty.

We have a Stevenage postcode but are situated just inside the Bedfordshire border and use a Hertfordshire postal address. Shillington was named after a Saxon called Scyttle and there has been at least 43 variations in the spelling of its name over the years. It appears in the Domesday Book as 'Sethlingdone'

The population in 2009 stood at about 1800 and there are some 800 houses.

With two churches, three pubs (and more close by) two shops, a village hall and nearly 30 miles of footpaths surrounding the village, Shillington offers a peaceful environment matched to an active and varied social scene.
