An £80,000 redevelopment of the village green, completed in 2009, provided the green with a new pond, benches and a flower bed. Shirdley Hill railway station was on the Liverpool, Southport and Preston Junction Railway, though the station closed in 1938, and the track was lifted in 1964. A plaque on the corner of Shaws Garth marks the site.
In 2013, the Village installed an Automated Defibrillator near the Bus Stop.
Shirdley Hill gave its name to "Shirdley Hill Sand" which was used in a number of industrial processes, particularly glassmaking.
