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.

The latest roadworks news!

The Parish Council would like to apologise for the previous message about the road closure. It came about because we were informed by Wiltshire Council on Thursday afternoon that the closure was posted in error and was not notified on the one.network website where Wiltshire Council advertise road closures. That website was then updated at around 8.00pm to show the closure. We always endeavour to advise villagers in good time; however, on this occasion, we were acting on incorrect information. We will attempt to discover how this happened, in an effort to prevent future occurrences.

Regards, Nic

Roadworks 11/11/22

According to one.network Stag Hill will be closed until 23.59pm on Monday 14th November.

Everyone is welcome.


Dateline 28th September
A message from Nic Coome, Chairman, Chilton Foliat Parish Council.

Following much discussion between the Parish Council, Wiltshire Council and Thames Water, I am very pleased to be able to say that the proposed closure of the B4192 will not now take place. Thames Water have agreed that the new pipework can be laid in the field adjacent to the road, subject only to a final archaeological check. In the extremely unlikely event that the check reveals significant archaeological evidence, this may have to be revisited, however the risk is considered extremely low. The Parish Council will continue to monitor the situation and will post updates here as appropriate.

Dateline 16th September

Road Works
Some people may be aware of what could be a lengthy closure of the B4192 towards Hungerford. These works are not yet approved by Wiltshire Highways who are looking to reduce the disruption. Firm information will be published when it is made available.
