Alveley is a village in the Severn Valley in southeast Shropshire, England, about 11 miles south-southeast of Bridgnorth. It is in the civil parish of Alveley and Romsley. The 2011 Census recorded the parish population as 2,098.
The Black Death is said to have killed 60% of the village population in 1349. A stone cross, the Buttercross, 2 miles outside the village dates from the time of the Black Death when it was a place for food to be left for the village when it was quarantined.
