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.
Temporary Closure of: B4192 (Part), Aldbourne and Ramsbury (Ref: TTRO 5480)
Notice is hereby given that Wiltshire Council has made an Order to close temporarily to all traffic:
B4192 (Part), Aldbourne and Ramsbury; from its junction with Farm Lane, Aldbourne, to its junction with Marridge Hill, Preston.
To enable: Eurovia to undertake works for carriageway resurfacing, surface dressing and road markings.
Alternative route: via B4192 (unaffected length) - Liddington Crossroads - Foxhill - Baydon Road - Ermin Street - B4001 Straight Soley - Chilton Foliat - B4192 (unaffected length) and vice versa.
The closure and diversion route will be clearly indicated by traffic signs.
This Order, which previously came into operation on 15 March 2018, will now recommence on 2 August 2018 and it is anticipated that the closure will be required until 5 August 2018. It is anticipated that the works will take the stated duration to complete depending upon weather conditions. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works. The Order has a maximum duration of 18 months.
