Description

Description of Shalstone, from J.J. Sheahan, 1861

The area of Shalstone or Shalston, with Old Wick, is 1,320 acres; population 246; rateable value, £1,260. The soil is a tenacious cold clay, with limestone.

The village is remarkably neat, and near its centre is a spring which serves as a drinking fountain, and was covered with stone in 1851 It is distant from Buckingham 4 miles N.W.

Shalstone House is a large square built mansion approached by a noble avenue of trees leading to the south front. It is surrounded by extensive garden and pleasure grounds, tastefully laid out in parterres, and containing a choice collection of all the new Pinus tribe. On the east side is a fine sheet of water. Shalstone House is the seat of Mrs. Fitz-Gerald.

The Living, a Rectory, is valued in the Liber Regis at £8 0s 5d., and now worth £225 per annum, gross value. The advowson has always been attached to the possession of the manor. The present Rector is the Rev. Cadwellader Coker. The parish was enclosed by an Act passed in 1767, when an allotment was assigned in lieu of all the tithes, excepting those of an estate then belonging to a Mr. Taylor, which continued tithable.

The School, erected in 1852, and supported by Mrs Fitz-Gerald, is a pretty and commodious building of white brick with Bath stone facings. The roof is covered with black ornamental tiles, the chimney shafts too are highly ornamental, and there is a neat garden in front. About 40 children attend daily.
