Clunbury is a village and civil parish in south Shropshire, England.

It is near to the small town of Clun and the villages of Clunton, Purslow and Aston on Clun. In the village is the Norman Church of St Swithin and a Church of England primary school.

The village lies between 145m and 155m above sea level. To the north the Clun and Kemp rivers flow, before meeting to the northeast. A lane runs up to the B4368 / B4385 crossroads at Little Brampton, and crosses these rivers by bridges.[2]

The church is called "St Swithin's Church"

In November 2007, Clunbury Primary School was awarded the Becta ICT Excellence Award for its use of technology.[3]

Clunton and Clunbury,

Clungunford and Clun,
Are the quietest places

Under the sun.
