Overton is a small village in south Shropshire, England.
It is situated west of the River Teme, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south of the town of Ludlow and close to the border with Herefordshire. The B4361 (until 1979 the A49) road runs through. It comes within the civil parish of Richard's Castle, a village to its south.
In the Domesday Book it is recorded as the manor of Avretone, which included Richard's Castle. This manor at the time was recorded as belonging to the hundred of Cutestornes, a hundred of Herefordshire. Around the time of Henry I (1100-1139) the hundreds of Shropshire were greatly reformed and the hundred of Munslow was created; this hundred took in Overton.
Businesses include Overton Grange Hotel and Overton Service Station (an independent car fuel and repair garage).
