    Chilmark – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Chilmark Stone
      Stone has been quarried in the area since Roman times. And it’s not just any old stone, used to create many of the stunning houses in the village (a great number of these are listed), an estimated 75,000 tons of Chilmark stone was also used to build Salisbury Cathedral and it was used for the spire of Chichester Cathedral. The quarries were a major employer in the area during the middle ages when families, including children would toil underground. The beautiful qualities of the limestone helped to shape the look of the village, which thanks to the many picturesque homes became a conservation area in 1973. Pamela Street wrote in her book An Illustrated Guide to Wiltshire, ‘Maybe because this valley is home of the famous Chilmark quarries, it possesses more than its fair share of beautiful stone houses.’
    2. A Bit Batty
      The stone quarries are no longer in use but left behind miles of tunnels that were taken over by the RAF and used to store munitions for a number of years. Today the tunnels are protected as they hold colonies of bats which add to the varied wildlife found in this area of the Nadder Valley.
    3. Going Back To Massachusetts
      Chilmark residents were among the early pilgrims to sail to America in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was the Wiltshire travellers that founded the town of Chilmark, Massachusetts.
    4. Haven’t You Grown!
      In 1086 the Domesday book recorded Chilmark as having a population of 39, comprising of 15 villagers, 12 smallholders, 12 freedmen and was worth 14 pounds. By 1377 records for the time state the village had 136 ‘taxpayers’ (residents over the age of 14). Details for 1811 show Chilmark had grown to 406 and by the 2011 government census, the bustling metropolis had reached… 866!
    5. Just Roman Around
      A Roman road runs to the north of the village that travels from Salisbury to Winchester. Roman coins and remains were found around the quarries and also Bronze Age tools including what is believed to be a Bronze Age razor.
    6. Listed
      The village has a primary school, Chilmark and Fonthill Bishop CofE Primary School. The building began as a National School, built in Chilmark stone in 1860. The Black Dog Inn in the very centre of the parish was built in the 15th century and is now a Grade II listed building. It was a public house from at least the early 18th century and there was an extension to the rear of the building in the 19th century. Other listed buildings in the village include a number of privately owned houses; Greystones, The Dial House, Inglefield House, Rose Cottage, Ridge Farm and Corner Cottage.

    Located in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the village quite literally constructed from the local quarry that not only was used in many of the village’s listed properties, the quarries also brought employment and transport links to the area as far back as the Roman era. Chilmark stone has been used in some splendid historical structures such as Chichester and Salisbury Cathedrals.

    While the classic stone houses are still at the forefront of the village aesthetic, the times they are a changing, the quarries are no longer in use and are now vital habitat for local wildlife including bat colonies. And life in the village has evolved, coal is long gone and the village has a greener ethos and some great independent shops that are not only mindful of the environment, they also offer great local service that make village life so special.


    A small village with a great sense of community, Chilmark has regular coffee mornings, Zumba classes, visits from a mobile library, ‘Social Stitchers’, ‘Ride & Stride’ and all kinds of fun days and events. The village also benefits from stunning countryside right on the doorstep for cycling, riding and dog walking. Fonthill Gardens are open to the public and the nearest golf course can be found just west of Salisbury.
