In the 2001 Census the parish had a population of 331, increasing slightly to 340 at the 2011 census.

West Halton has existed from the Anglo Saxon period, and is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Haltone". The name has been translated as "farmstead in a nook or corner of land".

West Halton has a central village green. There is a public house, the Butchers Arms, and a village hall which has served as a part-time post office since the village post office closed. There are no shops in the village. The church is dedicated to St Etheldreda; it was built in 1695 as a replacement for an earlier building destroyed by fire in 1692.

A public transport bus service is provided by Hornsby Travel, subsidised by North Lincolnshire Council. The now closed West Halton railway station was situated near the village. It was built in 1906 by the North Lindsey Light Railway.
