Ludgershall is a village and civil parish in the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire, England. It is near the boundary with Oxfordshire, about south-east of Bicester and west of Waddesdon.
The toponym is Old English in origin, and is said to mean "nook with a trapping spear" but this is disputed. It occurs in more than one place in England (see Ludgershall). The Domesday Book of 1086 records the village as Litlegarsele.
Henry II granted land in the parish to the priory of Santingfeld in Picardy, France. It is possible that a hospital was founded on this land, although it is uncertain. In the reign of Henry VI, when all alien church possessions were seized by the Crown, this land was given to King's College, Cambridge.
Ludgershall was once home to the theologian John Wyclif.
