The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'Coll's hill', though it has only been known by this name since the early 16th century. Previously it was known as 'Stoke'. The change of name occurred at about the same time as the village was transferred from Hertfordshire to Buckinghamshire by the Counties (Detached Parts) Act 1844.
The village has a junior school (Coleshill Church of England Infant School), community hall, two pubs (The Red Lion http://www.theredlioncoleshill.pub and The Harte & Magpies), a tennis club with two courts, and a cricket club. A small play park exists in Hill Meadow.
The village has a pond which is notable for the presence of Starfruit, Damasonium alisma, which is found at only a few locations in Buckinghamshire and Surrey in Southern England. The pond is centrally located and while the village does have a Common, it is rather hidden from view.
All Saints Church was built of flint and stone in 1861.
The village includes Georgian villas and some 1809 cottages with bottle ends set into the upper walls for decoration.
