Covingham is an urban village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, now part of the built-up area of the Borough of Swindon. It was developed in the middle 1960s as part of Swindon's eastward expansion towards the A419. The estate is exclusively private housing.

St Paul's Church, Covingham, is a modern building.[2] There is a local school named Covingham Park Primary School, and a pub named The Messenger.
