Neen Savage is a civil parish and a hamlet in south east Shropshire, England. It is situated north of the small market town of Cleobury Mortimer. The River Rea, which was historically known as the River Neen,[1] flows past the hamlet, and a notable ford exists.

The village contains a parish church, in whose churchyard stands the local war memorial in form of a square stone cross.[2]

London publisher Thomas Adams (c1566-1620) was son of a yeoman farmer of Neen Savage.

In 2016 the population of Neen Savage was estimated to be just under 300 souls.
