Abdon is a scattered rural hamlet situated high on the slopes of Brown Clee Hill, in a beautiful location overlooking the Corvedale.  We form part of the South Shropshire Hills area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).

Abdon consists of approximately 28 dwellings and includes the parish church of St. Margaret's, a Village Hall and the remains of a deserted medieval village.  Close by are the remains of an Iron Age hill fort now known as Nordy Bank.
