Myddle—also formerly known as Mydle, Middle, , M'dle, Meadley and Medle—is a small village in Shropshire, England, about 10 miles north of Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. Myddle lies in the parish of Myddle and Broughton. The 2001 census recorded a population of 1,142 in the village, rising to 1,333 at the 2011 census.

In a book written about Myddle in 1700, the author, Richard Gough, describes the parish community and its doings, and his work has been used as a study of human relations. The book has been called "the greatest insight into that group [that is, 'the middle sort'] of people," in Early Modern England.
