Shutlanger is situated 4 miles from Towcester, midway between the A5 and A508 both giving excellent access to Stony Stratford and onwards to Milton Keynes where there is an Intercity train service to London Euston (40 minutes). The A508 also gives access north to junction 15 of the M1, and there is easy access to the southwest of Towcester and Brackley.
In 1881 Shutlanger parish's total population was 403. In 1901 it was 339 and by 1971 it had dropped to 233. At the time of the 2001 census, it was 270 people. There was a great medieval house here called the Monastery, but it was just a house and not a monastery in the normal sense. The village is close to Stoke Park Pavilions and originally part of the Stoke Park estate with the first Palladian-style English country house.
Shutlanger has its own Parish Council and belongs to the church grouping with Stoke Bruerne and Grafton Regis. The village has a pub (named The Plough) and a village hall. The nearest primary school and church are at Stoke Bruerne one mile east of Shutlanger.
