Ferney Hall is a mid-Victorian-era mansion house situated at Onibury, Shropshire, England. It is a Grade II listed building.

The estate has had several owners, including, in the 16th century, the Norton family, and in the 17th century the Ffolliott family, followed by Walker in the 19th century.

Designs for new gardens at the old hall appeared in the 'Red Book' of Humphry Repton in 1789.

The present mansion was built on the site of the old hall in 1856 by William Willoughby George Hurt Sitwell, great nephew of Sir Sitwell Sitwell. Following a fire which severely damaged the structure, architect Samuel Pountney Smith supervised the rebuilding in 1875.

The property was occupied during the war years by the R.A.S.C. and later as Italian P.O.W. camp and then German P.O.W. camp. Owner, Mrs Cushney occupied some rooms throughout the war and until her death in about 1955 or'56. The restoration of Ferney Hall was due for completion early 2009, when its new owners were Mr and Mrs Wem. The restoration was being done by Mr William Wem and his son Dean Wem.
