Shirdley Hill is a small village in the civil parish of Halsall, Lancashire, England, and is situated on the West Lancashire Coastal Plain. It is reached by B roads from either the A5147 or the A570.

An £80,000 redevelopment of the village green, completed in 2009, provided the green with a new pond, benches and a flower bed.[1] 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.[2]

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.[3]
