The Local Area Guide to Living in Shenstone

The village of Shenstone, historically named Senestown, sits quietly between Birmingham and the ancient cathedral city of Lichfield. Surrounded by the Staffordshire countryside and fuelled by a thriving local community, Shenstone is a haven for both residents and visitors alike. Also containing the villages of Stonnall and Little Aston, the active Civil Parish is shaped by a long and rich history at the heart of England.

Village life in Shenstone is founded upon a lively local community, with a great variety of organised activities, groups, and clubs to serve multiple interests including competitive football and cricket teams. The village maintains a strong relationship with the police team and local MP which helps to maintain the harmonious lifestyle and sense of community.

Historically, Shenstone was recorded in the Domesday Book as a small village covering around 380 acres of land, with a sizeable wood and a mill. Stretching back to the 12th Century, records put the local population at around 125, with church archives and documentation going as far back as 1129. Almost 900 years later, Shenstone has a thriving and active community of over 3000 residents. Formerly the manufacturing centre and home of the Norton Motorcycle, the famed old factory still remains stoutly on the outskirts of the village as a reminder of its colourful past.

In recent years, with the help of several external agencies, Shenstone and its facilities have also undergone a large process of improvement and revitalization. Public facilities now include outdoor keep fit equipment, a Multi-Use Games Area, and an upgraded play area to provide a safe environment for younger children. These new facilities now serve in addition to the established Shenstone Playing Fields, communal green spaces, library, communal buildings, and more.
