Leaton is a small village in Shropshire, England.
The Shrewsbury to Chester Line runs through, though the nearest railway station is at Shrewsbury, as the former Leaton railway station closed to passengers in 1960. The signal box went in 1988, but today there remains a level crossing. A small industrial estate now exists at the former railway sidings.
There once existed the Leaton Brick and Pipe Works, one of a number of clay-based industries in the area.
Just to the south of Leaton is the hamlet of Dunnsheath.
