St Andrew's church Shelsley Walsh
Shelsley Walsh is a small village and parish in the Doddingtree hundred Worcestershire, 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.
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 "foreigners". A record of the name as Shilsleywalish, undated, proves this.
