Church of King Charles the Martyr, Shelland
|Sovereign state||United Kingdom|
|EU Parliament||East of England|
Shelland consists of roughly 10 houses, a church and Shelland Green. At the 2001 census the village had a population of 39. At the 2011 Census the population was still less than 100 and was included in the civil parish of Rattlesden. Shelland's name is unique and derives from "Shelf land" as it is situated on a "shelf" that overlooks the village of Buxhall.
The mediaeval parish church, effectively rebuilt in 1767, is a grade II* listed building. It is unique in that it is the only church in the UK with a regularly used barrel organ. It is also one of only five dedicated to "King Charles the Martyr" (Charles I).
