Corsley is a hamlet and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, 3 miles (5 km) west of Warminster. The parish is on the county border with Somerset; the Somerset town of Frome is about 3 miles (5 km) to the northeast. The largest settlement in the parish is Corsley Heath, which is on the A362 Warminster-Frome road.

The parish has several small settlements. Lye's Green is between Corsley and Corsley Heath (not to be confused with Lye Green, in Westwood parish near Bradford on Avon). Lane End is west of Corsley Heath on the A362, while the small hamlet of Sturford is to the east. South of the main road are Dertfords, Longhedge, Whitbourne Moor (formerly Lower Whitbourne), Temple (formerly Middle Whitbourne) and Whitbourne Springs (formerly Upper Whitbourne).

The boundaries of the civil parish were redrawn in 1934. The northern part (including Corsley Mill and Huntenhull) was transferred to the new parish of Chapmanslade, while in the south a portion of Longleat's park and woodland was transferred from Warminster to Corsley.
