Shilley Green


Once coppiced beeches line the lane from Hitch Wood to Shilley Green where its forks to the Easthall hamlets one way, gently down the valley slope to Langley another way, or more steeply down a byway to Langley Bottom.

An old farm stands back from a grassy patch, dominated by a magnificent ash tree – long may it survive ash die back disease. Apart from that, there are some stables and a pre-fabricated house with an old railway carriage for an outbuilding.

The fields and vestigial woodland round here are great for spotting fallow deer – which sometimes hold up the sparse traffic – and hares and foxes. Sadly, fly tippers are a regular scourge.
