Boningale is a village and civil parish in Shropshire, England. The village lies just south of Albrighton, and just west of the county border with Staffordshire. The village is about eight miles west of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, on the A464 road, and ten miles east of Telford.
Its name was formerly spelt as Boningall or Bonninghall.
Boningale's most famous resident is perhaps the notorious eighteenth-century criminal Jonathan Wild, who was said to have been born there in 1682, although he is otherwise described as a native of nearby Wolverhampton.
