Shelsley Walsh is a small village and civil parish in Worcestershire, England, at the top of the western valley side of the River Teme. Its population at the time of the 2001 Census was just 31.

Shelsley Walsh is widely known among motorsport enthusiasts because of its association with the Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb, which has been run since 1905.

History

Shelsley Walsh means "Sceald's clearing" from Old English Sceald (a personal name) and leāh "wood, clearing", or "clearing by a shallow stream", or perhaps "clearing by a stream". The name was recorded as Caldeslai in Domesday Book. The addition of Walsh to the name is from the surname of Johannes Waleys, who held the manor in 1235.[1]

Shelsley Walsh was in the upper division of Doddingtree Hundred.[2] St Andrew's church is of 13th century origin.[3]
