Wincham is a civil parish and village in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It is about three miles north of Northwich in the Cheshire Plain. The Trent and Mersey Canal runs through the parish.
The whole area around Wincham was the site of salt mining for many years, with the Lion Salt Works at nearby Marston. This industry finally ceased in the village in 2005 when New Cheshire Salt Works was bought by British Salt and closed down.
The population of the parish was:
- 1801: 367
- 1851: 684
- 1901: 1054
- 1951: 890
- 2001: 2289
Wincham was one of the townships of the parish of Great Budworth, but became a separate civil parish in 1866.
