Hadfield is a small residential town within the Borough of High Peak in Derbyshire, England. The town is on the west side of the Peak District, and is a residential suburb of Glossop with most local amenities and services being based in Glossop town centre.

The town Hadfield has a railway station on the electrified line to Glossop and Manchester Piccadilly, and is just off the A628 road, linking Manchester with Barnsley and Sheffield. The railway, known as the Woodhead Line, used to run through to Penistone and Sheffield via the Woodhead Tunnel but passenger services were withdrawn in 1970. Freight trains ran until 1981, after which Hadfield became the terminus of the line.

Hadfield is within close proximity of the Greater Manchester county boundary, and some services are provided with this in mind. Though lying within Derbyshire and the East Midlands, some of Hadfield's transport facilities are managed by the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive, whilst Tameside and Glossop Acute Services, based in Tameside, Greater Manchester, is the NHS Trust which operates in the area.

Hadfield is popular with walkers especially during the summer months and the Longdendale Trail which runs along the Longdendale valley to Woodhead Tunnel starts in Hadfield and runs along the trackbed of the former Woodhead line.

The television series "The League of Gentlemen" was filmed in Hadfield.
