Adderley Parish is one of the largest in Shropshire stretching from Audlem in Cheshire to the border with North Staffordshire. This rural Parish with a small population has a vibrant agricultural base but sits within four miles of the market town of Market Drayton.

Adderley boasts beautiful, unspoilt countryside through which runs the Shropshire Union Canal making its way through the Adderley locks to the Audlem flight on its way into Cheshire.

The Village has a grade 1 listed Church, St Peters, a village school and a busy Village Hall and championship Bowling Club.
