1996 onwards – United Benefice of Wickhamford and Broadway

Until 1980, the ecclesiastical benefices of Wickhamford and Badsey (with Aldington) were held in plurality, ie the Vicar of Wickhamford was also the Vicar of Badsey, although they were separate appointments.  In 1980, the two benefices became one united benefice, but retaining their individual Parochial Church Councils and financial control.  To all intents and purposes, there was no change.

However, 16 years later, change did come when a new Pastoral Scheme, which came into effect on 1st July 1996, separated Wickhamford from Badsey.  Having had a shared history for centuries and having shared a Vicar for over 300 years, Wickhamford now became part of the United Benefice of Broadway and Wickhamford.

The following is a list of Vicars.  Information has been provided by Tom Locke and Val Harman.
