Shenton Conservation Area


Bridge over River Tweed

The Shenton Conservation Area was designated by the council in October 1992.

The village lies in rolling countryside, where the River Sence joins the River Tweed, its tributary. A three-arched bridge spanning the River Tweed was constructed in 1851 at the western end of the village.

The eastern edge is defined by the massive blue brick aquaduct which carries the Ashby Canal over Bosworth Road.

The character of the Shenton Conservation Area is derived from its agricultural origins of the settlement and its close links to the countryside.

Buildings in the village reflect these rural connections and consist of the landowner's hall, the church, village farms and several farmworkers' cottages.
