Ashford Carbonell (or Ashford Carbonel) is a village and civil parish in south Shropshire, England, near the county border with Herefordshire.

According to the 2001 census it had a population of 328. The village lies south of the market town of Ludlow, on the eastern side of the River Teme, facing the smaller Ashford Bowdler. The parish church, dedicated to Saint Mary Magdalene,[1] is Norman in origin.

Education[edit]

On 1 November 2011, a new £3m primary school (the "Bishop Hooper School") opened in the village, which replaced both the village's old primary school as well as the school in neighbouring Caynham.[2]
