Shefford Woodlands is a village in the English county of Berkshire. It is situated in West Berkshire, near the villages of Great Shefford and Wickham and next to the M4.

History

Shefford Woodlands is said to be where 'Wild Will Darell' was killed after his horse saw a vision of a burning baby. He had earlier killed a baby born at his house by throwing it into a fire, but had escaped hanging due to family connections.
