Walesby forms part of the district of West Lindsey.
It lies in the Lincolnshire Wolds, 3 miles (4.8 km) northeast of Market Rasen and 7 miles (11 km) south of Caistor. Tealby parish lies to the southeast. The parish covers about 3,600 acres (15 km2) and includes the hamlets of Risby and Otby.
All Saints' Church on the hillside became disused in favour of a new church of St Mary that was erected in Walesby village itself in 1913. The old church was renovated in the 1930s and became a meeting place for various local groups including the ramblers. It became known as the "Ramblers Church", and a stained glass window depicting walkers and cyclists, was donated by local ramblers in 1951. The Viking Way now passes close by.
St Mary’s is an "Arts and Crafts" style Church designed by the Irish architect, Temple Moore. In 2008 the church was shut after an earthquake when a large crack appeared in the tower and masonry fell inside the church. St Mary’s was also damaged in the 1930s when a hurricane dislodged its ‘candle snuffer’ spire resulting in its eventual removal.
