Abbey Green is a village near Leek, in the civil parish of Leekfrith and in the English county of Staffordshire.

The village is close to the site of Dieulacres Abbey. The abbey was founded in 1214 by Ranulph de Blondeville, 6th Earl of Chester for Cistercian monks, who moved from Poulton, Cheshire because of attacks from the Welsh. The Earl gave the monks the manor of nearby Leek, where a Wednesday market had recently been established. The abbey remained in existence until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when it was surrendered in 1538.

The Abbey Inn, a feature of the village, is a Grade II* listed building and is dated 1702.
