Shelthorpe Avenue and Shelthorpe Road Shelthorpe Chantry was founded in the manor by Hugh Despencer in the 13th Century and a priest sang a mass daily for the founder’s soul. The yearly endowment of this Chantry was five marks out of the revenue of the Manor, an allowance of eighteen pence per annum for wine and wax, and eight cart loads of wood from the neighbouring forest for fuel. The site of the Chantry was at Shell thought which was originally Searlesthorpe, an inheritance for several generations of the family of Serlo de Thorp, before it came into the possession of the Lord of the Manor of Loughborough.
