Wardley is a village and civil parish in the county of Rutland in the East Midlands of England. The population at the 2001 census was 32. At the 2011 census the population remained less than 100 and is included in the civil parish of Ridlington. It is located about two miles (3 km) west of Uppingham, close to the A47.
The manor is not mentioned in Domesday Book, but was probably among the unnamed berewicks attached to Ridlington. By the early 12th century it was in the hands of Richard Basset, who granted it to Launde Priory in Leicestershire with whom it remained until the Dissolution.
The two-mile (3 km) £1.9 million Wardley Hill Improvement for the A47 opened in October 1987 when the road through the village became a dead end.
