Hadley is a village and part of the new town of Telford in the borough of Telford and Wrekin and the ceremonial county of Shropshire, England.

Hadley is about 3 miles (5 km) north-west of Telford Town Centre, and is in the civil parish of Hadley and Leegomery (previously called simply "Hadley"). The population of the civil parish mentioned at the 2011 census was 14,166.[1]

It neighbours Wellington, a market town also part of Telford, and that town's two colleges of Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT) and New College (NC), all to the west of Hadley. Ketley is immediately to the south of Hadley.[2]

Hadley's parish war memorial, to men of Hadley and district who died serving in the two World Wars, is an imitation of the Cenotaph in London's Whitehall. It stands in Manse Road near the Methodist Church.[3]
