This hamlet is about a mile to the west of the parish of Stoke Bruerne to which it belongs, and was known as a Chapelry.  The Chapel which stands on the main road through the village, now serves as a children's nursery.  There are some attractive cottages in Bakers Lane and Twitch Hill, with a pleasant stream winding amongst them, but the most impressive building is the monastery.  Just to the south of the Monastery, on the footpath from Stoke Bruerne, are a series of carved seats, constructed from tree stumps, ideal for the weary walker.  The Plough Inn provides for the inner man or woman. 

Whellan Directory of 1849 reported that William Davis of Little Billing died at Shutlanger in 1751 aged 114, retaining all his faculties to the last.  Perhaps a pinch of salt needed here.
