Four Ashes is a village in Staffordshire, England, located about four miles west of Cannock.

Until 1959 the village was the location of Four Ashes railway station on the Rugby-Birmingham-Stafford Line of the Grand Junction Railway.[1] The station is now closed however the railway line still runs past the village.

Four Ashes Hall is a 17th-century house in the village. It is open for conferences and weddings and has been in the same family for 350 years. It is still privately owned.[2]
