Shenleybury Churchyard, or St. Botolph's Churchyard as it was once known, is located down Black Lion Hill on the outskirts of the village of Shenley, Hertfordshire. Its distinctive flint wall is easy to spot and it is recommended to park in Shenleybury Cottages, opposite, so as not to block the bus lane. It has a wheelchair-accessible slope for those that find steps a challenge.

To date, Shenleybury has 534 graves, although some of them are unknown, and some go back to the 17th Century. Two notables buried in Shenleybury graveyard are Nicholas Hawksmoor, architect, and Formula One racing champion, Graham Hill. Please note that these two graves are on private land, so please seek permission from the land owner before visiting. This graveyard is still in use, so be aware that funerals may be taking place.
