Bobbington is just on the county border with Shropshire (to the west), and is about 8 miles (13 km) east of Bridgnorth in Shropshire. It is only about 5 miles (8.0 km) west of the border with West Midlands, and during World War II was home to Bobbington airfield, renamed during the war as Halfpenny Green, and now known as Wolverhampton Halfpenny Green Airport.
