Welcome to our village. Shirley is a small community of 250 people nestling in the folds of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. It is a mostly agricultural environment, being an estate village from the middle ages, but since the war has also become a dormitory for people working in Derby and other nearby towns as well as a for many retired people.

We have retained a very rural atmosphere, and farming is still our biggest activity, so that the village is regarded as a peaceful, quiet place where you can relax and unwind.

We have a number of interesting buildings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries which are still inhabited, a 14th century church which has within it a useful community space, and an 18th century pub where fine food is served.

It is a centre for walkers as there are many trails through farmland and woods available to all, and we are on SUSTRANS Route 1 from Dover to The Shetlands. Horseriding is available from local stables and we have a well used Sports Field.

Shirley is an excellent centre for exploring this beautiful part of England. We are centrally placed for visiting Alton Towers, Buxton, Chatsworth, many National Trust properties in the locality, and there is an excellent racecourse at Uttoxeter.
