The Village has three schools which are St Giles Primary, Killamarsh Infants and Killamarsh Juniors. It also has four churches which are St Giles Church, Killamarsh Methodist Church, Ebenezer Gospel Hall and New Hope Community Church. We have a Post Office, Youth Centre, Library, Medical Centre, numerous shops and many public houses including our very own, Parish Pump.
