Wickersley is a village and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham in South Yorkshire, England, situated 3 miles (4.8 km) from central Rotherham. The area is very near to road junctions for the M1, M18 and A1(M) motorways which all pass through nearby Bramley. The village of Wickersley had a population of 7,235 in the census of 2001.

Wickersley was once held by Richard FitzTurgis (who adopted the name de Wickersley), founder of Roche Abbey, and subsequently by his heirs by marriage, the de Livet (Levett) family. The Wickersleys later removed to Sheffield, where they built the home Broom Hall.
