Midgham Village has been established for many hundreds of years. There is even mention of the village in the Domesday Book.

Midgham became a parish in it’s own right in 1857 and the then new Squire appointed the first Vicar (Rev. John Errington) in 1867 for the newly built church.

 You can study a map of the village from that time here.

The Village Hall was built in 1938 and has been run for the village ever since.
