The village of Shillingbury is a tranquil place, staunch in the established old-fashioned values of rural England. It is a picture postcard place of honeysuckle and home-made strawberry jam teas, fine thatched roofs, a timbered pub and contented folk. A place where God's in his heaven and all's right with the world.
