Badgeworth is a village and civil parish in the Tewkesbury district of Gloucestershire, England, between Gloucester and Cheltenham. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 1,206, increasing to 1,286 at the 2011 census.[1] Apart from the village of Badgeworth the parish also includes Bentham and Little Witcombe.

Despite its small size and being situated nearly a mile south of the line, in 1840 Badgeworth was provided with a station on the newly opened Birmingham and Gloucester Railway (later part of the Midland Railway and subsequently the LMS), but this was a very early casualty, closing as early as 1843.

Governance[edit]

An electoral ward in the same name exists. This ward stretches from Boddington in the north to Badgeworth in the south. The total ward population at the 2011 census was 2,124.[2]
