Blakeshall is a hamlet in Worcestershire, England. It is one of the ancient townships of the manor of Wolverley, whose extent was similar to that of the modern civil parish of Wolverley & Cookley.

Near the village is the former Blakeshall Common, which has been planted with coniferous woodland. Though not within the ancient bounds of the manor of Kingsford, these woods are now Kingsford country Park.
