St Andrew's church is of 13th century origin.
Its population at the time of the 2001 Census was just 31.
Shelsley Walsh means "clearing on a slope" from Old English scelf "shelf (of land)" and leāh "wood, clearing". The name was recorded as Scillislege in 948. The addition of Walsh to the name is from the surname Walsh, which means "of the Welsh", from Old English walas "Welsh, foreigners". A record of the name as Shilsleywalish, undated, proves this.
