HRH Queen Elizabeth II 1926 – 2022

The Parish Council wishes to extend its deepest sympathy and condolences to all the Royal Family on the death of a much loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Her tireless commitment to public service and great sense of duty to our Nation, the Commonwealth, and peoples across the world will not be forgotten.

If you wish to express your condolences, please send a message to the Royal Family via the online Book of Condolence on the Royal website which is still open.

 

Shadoxhurst is a village on the Kent Weald located between the North Downs and Romney Marsh in beautiful wooded countryside and farmland southwest of Ashford, Kent.

We have an interesting 13th century church, some fine buildings and a popular country pub. The earliest written record of Shadoxhurst is from 1239 when the parish name was spelled ‘Schettokesherst’. Although the origin of the first part of the name is obscure, it may have come from a family name commonly known centuries ago, such as Shaddock or Shattock. Hurst or Herst is an Anglo-Saxon word which means a wooded knoll.  Data from the 2011 Census reveals 1,216 residents in our parish of 803.22 Hectares. Read more about Shadoxhurst. Hire our Village Hall or Pavilion.
