High Wych is a village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England.

High Wych lies two miles south west of the town of Sawbridgeworth, which became a separate ecclesiastical parish in 1861 and a separate civil parish in 1901. It is about five miles from Harlow. Its parish includes Great Pennys, Trimms Green, Sacombs Ash, Allens Green, Chandlers, Carters, Rook End, Hoskins and Sayes Park.[2] The village contains a Church of England primary school[3] and a late 19th-century church, St James, with a marble reredos[2] and a Father Willis organ.[4] Both are used for the annual arts festival.[5] A moated site is all that remains of the medieval residence of Mathams.[2]
