St. Mary’s Church, Shenley Church End
It is likely that the church building existed in some form from 1223, for this is when the first rector is recorded. Parts of the nave date back to c1150, and parts of the chancel date back to c1180. The stonework in the church covers both Norman and Early English periods. The north aisle was built in the 14th century, and the font in the 15th century.
It's one of two churches in the partnership with an active bell tower and the six bells are rung by a team of bellringers for weddings and special events throughout the year.
A number of groups meet in the church: Mothers' Union every 3rd Tuesday at 2.00pm, Kneelers Group every other Wednesday
