About Midgham

Midgham is a small village that lies 6 miles east of Newbury and 2 miles east of Thatcham, with a population of 334. The A4, the river Kennet, the Kennet and Avon canal and the railway all run through the parish. The river Kennet forms the southern boundary.

The village extends to the north 4.5 miles south of the M4 motorway, New Road Hill in the east, West Berkshire crematorium in the west, Midgham Marsh (south of the A4 road) in the south and to Midgham Green to the north.

NEWS : Midgham is proud to have a DEFIBRILATOR sited at the end of Birds Lane.

Thanks to a great team effort from the Parish Councillors, the generosity of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous and also thanks to Mr Tom Porteous for providing the power to the unit, Midgham now boasts its own defibrilator. Whilst we all hope it will never be needed, it gives peace of mind to residents of the village knowing it’s there just in case.


Midgham Parish Council currently has NO vacancies for a Parish Councillor, but we are always keen to hear from you if you are interested. For more information, please contact the Clerk.
