Shottle & Postern is a small, charming Derbyshire village situated approximately 5 miles south of the market town of Wirksworth in the Amber Valley area. It has a population of around 266.

In Norman times, the manor of Shottle, referred to as "Sothille" in the Domesday Survey, belonged to the Ferrers family.

Shottle is a rather rural village spread out on the road from Shottlegate to Wirksworth via Alport Height (Chequer Lane). Its main industry was, and remains, agriculture. Shottle Hall dates from 1841 and is a pleasant building in the late Georgian style, now used mainly for weddings and events.

Whilst some way out of the village itself, Shottle has its own railway station - called Shottle after Shottle Hall which is nearby. The station, which is on the Wirksworth Branch, was closed in 1947 to passengers and the building is owned by Peak Oil Ltd. The railway line has been reopened to passengers as the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.
