Loppington is a village and parish in Shropshire, England, situated a few miles west of Wem. The population of the parish (2001) is 576[1] and there are 206 households.

Loppington was recorded in the Domesday Book as Lopitone.

It has a rich history and many historical buildings, including the Church of Saint Michael, dating back to the 14th century[1] and having traces of a Norman building with characteristic Norman architecture.

Other interesting buildings are The Nook, a timber-framed house near to the church, and Loppington Hall, an early 18th-century brick house, a former residence of John Lloyd Dickin restored in 2002.
