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 the home of people working in nearby towns as well as a for many retired people.

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 local National Trust properties, and there is a racecourse at Uttoxeter.

Shirley Parish Council
Invites You to the
2017 Shirley Litter Pick
Saturday, 8th April 2017, from 9.15 to 11.30 a.m. — meet in St Michael’s Church community space.

Please come and help us keep our community clean and tidy. It will also be an opportunity to meet your Parish Councillors for Coffee and Cake after the clear up.

If you would like to take part, please contact either Hugh Tyler or Sue Walker.

Waste Recycling Centres
Government cuts mean the district council's budget will be a third lower in 2018 than in 2010 and we need to find new ways of helping to pay Derbyshire's £37.2m waste bill each year. From 3 April 2017 new charges apply for the disposal of some waste at household waste recycling centres.
