The Shenstone Heritage Trails are the brainchild of a small group of committed local historians who came together to share their fascination with village history. What better way to do this than to give people an opportunity to immerse themselves in that history by following a heritage trail in which there are many stories to be told, buildings to see and the past to imagine.
Situated just three miles south of Lichfield the village of Seneste, or Shenstone, lies around the hill on which the Church of St John the Baptist dominates the landscape. The village’s history can be traced back to the Roman and the Saxon days and was the only village in the area to be mentioned in the Domesday Book.
We hope you enjoy this trail.
