Chilton Foliat masthead
Chilton Foliat is an ancient settlement, going back to Saxon times, and beyond.  It is a small village with a current population of just over 300 adults. And it's beautiful, with many ancient houses. You could say it's a typical English country village.

Location in UK The village nestles in the undulating landscape of the Marlborough Downs, lying alongside the River Kennet, a very beautiful and clean chalkland river, much loved by fishermen.

This web site has been created by villagers, for the villagers, and aims to provide visitors and locals alike with information about the village. Any comments on how we can improve the site are always welcome.

Witness Appeal To Jewellery Burglary

My wife, Emma, and I moved into Stud House last August, buying it from Ian and Victoria Waters. We love the village and look forward to many happy years in the community.

Sadly yesterday we suffered a burglary at 6.10 - 6.20pm. Luckily neither Emma or I were at home, we called the police immediately who attended the scene within 20 mins or so, I am sure the flashing lights were noticed! Our nearby neighbours' new security system includes CCTV which is how we know that 4 men left the property at 6.20 and also spotted a lady walking her dog along the street only a few yards behind the perpetrators. Please see below. If the photo is sufficient to identify her, we would appreciate it if she was able to provide the Wiltshire police with any information that may support their investigation.

The police informed us 2 other burglaries were reported last night, one in Hungerford the other in Pewsey, which seems unlikely to be a coincidence.

For your information, we will be increasing security at the house including adding CCTV of our own. This may be worth dialogue at the forthcoming Parish Council? Perhaps having signs indicating CCTV exists in the village.

Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

Very best wishes,
Seb Hobbs
