A church or chapel has existed at Wichenford from early times with mention of a chapel in Wichenford, which was attached to the church of St. Helen, Worcester around 1234. Parts of the present church of St. Lawrence date from about 1320.
Until the mid-1990s Wichenford had both a village shop with Post Office and a village bakery, both now closed down. The two shops were situated at opposite sides of the village green, in the centre of the village. Wichenford also has a pub, the Mason's Arms, which is situated on the road to Martley and is not near the village centre.
Open Gardens and Village Fete
Every two years (the "odd" years) a number of the village's gardens are opened by their owners over a weekend in June. The 2015 event made in excess of £10,200 - an excellent result considering the stormy weather on the Saturday. Proceeds go to local charities. In even numbered years, a Fete is held in mid-July at The Memorial Hall. This popular event raises very welcome funds which are distributed to local good causes.
In the year 2000 the Millennium Green was opened.
Wichenford Memorial Hall  stands opposite the church and is used by local societies and for a variety of functions. The hall has excellent kitchen facilities and a "committee room" with a bar area.
