St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, Shelford is a parish church in the Church of England in Shelford, Nottinghamshire.

The church is Grade II* listed by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport[1] as it is a particularly significant building of more than local interest.

History[edit]

The church is medieval but was heavily restored between 1876 and 1878 by Ewan Christian. The tower of the church was used by Royalists during the siege of Shelford Manor during the English Civil War, but they were smoked out by Parliamentarian forces.

It is now part of the united parish of St. Mary's Church, Radcliffe on Trent.

Stained glass[edit]

There is stained glass in the chancel by Charles Eamer Kempe and in the north aisle by Alexander Gascoyne.

Organ[edit]

The organ was acquired from St. Catharine's Church, Nottingham in 2003. It was installed in the church by Henry Groves & Son in 2004.

Clock[edit]

An early clock was installed in 1680 by Richard Roe. This was replaced in 1880 by a new clock mechanism by G. & F. Cope of Nottingham.
