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.
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.

Sunday Roasts at The Wheatsheaf
We all love roasts...we love knowing that a beautiful joint of meat is slowly cooking in the oven, potatoes in the same tray, whilst we go for a good walk. When someone else is cooking for you, it is a truly special meal...
The Pub use Nesbitts Farm for their pedigree organic Beef... it has the best flavour and it's only 5 miles from us! For larger groups, The Wheatsheaf's private dining room can seat up to 14 people with an intimate atmosphere.
They promise no waste, no microwave vegetables, no Bisto granules, no mediocrity... everything is homemade and cooked just how "it used to be".
