Shenley Brook End is a village, district and civil parish in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. Together with its neighbouring parish, Shenley Church End and the districts of Shenley Wood and Shenley Lodge, the districts are collectively known as "The Shenleys".
The distinction between the Brook End and the Church End happened in the 12th century when a new manor house was constructed in Shenley Brook End by the Mansell family. However, by 1426 the two manors were owned by the same person and the distinction between the two places was in name only. Both were in the historic parish of 'Shenley'.
Today, the historic village is the core of the new district that bears its name. The district is bounded by V2 Tattenhoe Street, V3 Fulmer Street, H6 Childs Way and H7 Chaffron Way.

The parish includes Shenley Lodge, Furzton, Shenley Brook End, Emerson Valley, Westcroft, Tattenhoe (including Kingsmead, Howe Park Wood and Snelshall East) and Tattenhoe Park (including Snelshall West). The parish is bounded to the north-east by V4 Watling Street, to the north-west by H6 Childs Way, to the south-west by the borough boundary with Aylesbury Vale (at Whaddon) and to the south-east by H8/A421 Standing Way.
The brook rises near the site of Snelshall Priory, flows through Furzton where it is joined by a tributary from Emerson Valley, becomes the "tear-drop lakes" in Loughton and flows into the River Great Ouse at New Bradwell.
