Welcome to Shearsby

Shearsby now has a new web site within the Leicestershire Villages web site. Click here»


The village of Shearsby is situated in rural South Leicestershire, about five miles south of Wigston, on the Leicester to Northampton road.
It is a settlement of some 90 houses, centred on the Village Green which forms the heart of the village. Radiating from the Green, Church Lane is overlooked by the church of St Mary MagdaleneChurch at night and the 17th-century Yeoman's Cottage.

To the south, Fenny Lane houses the public house, The Chandlers Arms.
A broad mixture of old and new houses are clustered together in this close-knit community, where the year is punctuated by parties, flower shows, fetes, and its best-known event, Jazz on the Green.
The distinctive red brick which was once made in the village is noticeable in many of the older buildings.Village Hall
Shearsby's former school building was bought by the village in 1996 and was extended and renovated to provide a superb village hall, where toddlers' groups, W.I. meetings and other celebrations are held, as well as the meetings of the Parish Meeting and the thriving Community Association.
Although protected as a Conservation Area, Shearsby is by no means dormant - it is a lively, active and busy community well worthy of a pause on the Leicestershire Round.
