Shelford Church circa 1300 is a Grade II* listed building, used regularly for services but also with its wonderful acoustics is regularly used for concerts.

The village is eight miles away from Nottingham and has a population of some 230 residents.

It has one pub, the Earl of Chestefield Arms and one Village Hall, previously the Church of England School, built in 1873 by the Earl of Carnarvon and later taken over by the Notts Education Committee, the school closed in 1964.  The building belongs to the Crown Estate and was leased first to the Church and then to the Parish Council to be used as a Village Hall.
