Shenley Brook End is a village, district and civil parish in Milton Keynesmarker, Buckinghamshire, England. Together with its neighbouring parish, Shenley Church Endmarker and the districts of Shenley Wood and Shenley Lodge, the districts are collectively known as "The Shenleys".

The name 'Shenley' is an Old English language word meaning 'bright clearing'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the area was collectively known as Senelai.

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.
