Admaston is a village in the English ceremonial county of Shropshire, in the borough of Telford & Wrekin. It is located west of Wellington, and close to the village of Wrockwardine. It now forms part of the Telford new town.

It has a row of shops, including a hairdresser, Post Office, and two small convenience stores. It also has one public house, The Pheasant, a Methodist church and a Newfrontiers church called Hope Admaston.[1] St Peter's Church at Wrockwardine is Admaston's Church of England parish church.

Local recreational services include two football pitches and a bike park, whilst the new addition of a football and basketball games area has been popular with the local young people. A local community centre, Admaston House, run by local charity St Christopher's Trust Admaston, has several weekly clubs and activities. St Christopher's Trust also organise a week of community events at the end of June called Admaston Fun Week. A holiday club for primary school children runs in the morning and events for families and young people in the evening.[2]

Former TT road racer William (Bill) Doran lived in Station Road, Admaston, at time of his death in 1973.[3]
