Shellow Bowells (or occasionally misspelt as Shellow Bowels) is a village and former civil parish, now in the parish of Willingale, in the Epping Forest District of Essex, England. It is situated 6 miles (10 km) to the west of Chelmsford, between the villages of Willingale on its westerly border and Roxwell on its east. In 1931 the civil parish had a population of 95.
The village church, dedicated to St Peter and St Paul, is no longer in use as such, having become a private dwelling.
Shellow Bowells is mentioned by Bill Bryson in Notes From A Small Island and Paul Theroux's The Kingdom By The Sea. It is referred to as Shallow Bowells in Part Five of Random Harvest by James Hilton.
