Birdwell is a village in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England.

Birdwell is located approximately 4.5 miles south of Barnsley (measured from Barnsley town centre to the northern edge of Birdwell) and neighbouring villages include Worsbrough, Tankersley (accessible via a footbridge which crosses the M1 motorway), and Hoyland Common.

The A61 (Sheffield Road), passes north-south through the length of Birdwell and at the southern end is Birdwell Roundabout which is the junction between the M1 motorway at Junction 36 and the A61. Birdwell Roundabout also marks the start of the Dearne Valley Parkway - a relatively new dual carriageway / by-pass system which effectively links the M1 at Junction 36 to the A1 at Marr (near Doncaster).

Birdwell runs under the auspices of the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (BMBC).

Prior to 1974 Birdwell was situated in Tankersley Urban District in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England.
