High Wych is a village and civil parish in the East Hertfordshire district of Hertfordshire, England. The village is located a little over one mile south-west of the town of Sawbridgeworth, and around three miles north-east of Harlow in the neighbouring county of Essex.

The parish includes the settlements of Great Pennys, Trimms Green, Sacombs Ash, Allens Green, Chandlers, Carters, Rook End, Hoskins and Sayes Park.[3] The village contains a Church of England primary school[4] and a late 19th-century church, St James, with a marble reredos[3] and a Father Willis organ.[5] A moated site is all that remains of the medieval residence of Mathams.[3] There is also a Georgian historical house called the Manor of Groves which is now a hotel.
