Shillington is a village and civil parish in Bedfordshire, England. In the south of the parish the hamlet of Pegsdon includes the Pegsdon hills nature reserve and is a salient of the county into Hertfordshire. Since 1985 its administration has included the village of Higham Gobion, south-west on the minor road leading to the main north–south road in the district, the A6. It has a population of 1,831 and is centred midway between stopping services railway stations on the Midland Main Line and East Coast Main Line 6 miles away. Farmland and hedgerows forms 95% of the land use and to the south and north of the boundaries is intermittent woodland.

The village's name evolved through Sethlindone , Suthlingdon , Shutlyngdene, Shetelyngton , and then into an unfortunate Shytlington in official returns and letters of the 17th and 18th centuries. The name was later bowdlerised.
