Local Facilities

Shelford is small quiet and peaceful, a traditional farming village. There is a playing field on East Street with a children's play area and football goal. The Church, St Peter and St Paul is well worth a visit. There is a pub, at the other end of the village, The Earl of Chesterfield. There are many walks surrounding the village in the unspoiled countryside please ask for directions.
