The Church of St. Mary and St. Luke at Shareshill is a Grade 2 Listed building on account of the 13th century sandstone tower from a previous church, with a rare, Georgian nave with curved sanctuary built on.

The Clock is a primitive weight-driven clock that chimes on the hour, and despite its crude construction it keeps remarkably good time.

In July 2002 during the removal of panelling to investigate suspected rot at the back of the balcony, parts of two wall paintings were discovered. They predate the building of the balcony which is why only the top parts appear at the back of the balcony. They appear to have been plastered over at some point.
