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.

An urgent message from a Chilton Foliat Resident.

Last night, Tuesday 24th March, we had a break in to our garage and two KTM motorcycles were stolen. The bikes are orange and white respectively, and very distinctive 'off road bikes' - made by KTM. We think they were stolen between 11pm and 12.30am last night and must have been was done very silently as we have a dog who is alert to sounds outside. It appeared that there was a trailer / horsebox parked in the lay by by Manor Farm Cottages at around the same time - one of the villagers spotted it when dog walking. Our house is behind this, and we awoke to find the garage doors broken using bolt cutters used and the two motorbikes gone despite being chained inside.

If you or your families saw anything that might help the police, or information about recent activities in the village that might be linked, please contact us.

Many thanks! Sue Davison scurtisdavison@gmail.com.
