Wincham is a civil parish and village in the borough of Vale Royal in Cheshire, England. It is situated about three miles north of Northwich in the Cheshire Plain. The Trent and Mersey Canal runs through the parish.

The whole area surrounding 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 purchased by British Salt and closed down.

The population of the parish was:

* 1801: 367
* 1851: 684
* 1901: 1054
* 1951: 890

The village is home to Wincham Community Primary School.

It is home to Northwich Victoria Football Club who moved to the Victoria Stadium in 2005, and Witton Albion Football Club who moved to Wincham Park in 1989.
