Historically, our village was recorded in the Domesday Book as a settlement covering around 380 acres, with a large wood and a mill. The first clear reference to a church was in 1129 where records show its financial tithes were appropriated to the abbey of Oseney in Oxfordshire. Back in the 12th century the population of Shenstone was recorded to be 125 but today the it has a thriving community of over 3000 residents.
