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.
