Yorton is a small village in Shropshire, England.

It is notable for its railway station, which is on the Welsh Marches Line between Wem and Shrewsbury. The station is unusual for being a request stop. Nearby is the larger village of Clive. Approximately 1 mile away to the south lies the hamlet of Yorton Heath.
