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.
Crowdfunding The Wheatsheaf
We have just started our Crowdfunding Campaign where you can get some amazing rewards and in return help us to finish The Wheatsheaf.
Crowdfunding is a platform where we propose an idea or a project, and you can buy rewards in advance of the idea happening. Today, we are launching our campaign and looking to raise £15,000 to help us create a beautiful retail store in the garage selling vintage furniture, clothes, shoes, daily essentials, books, vinyls and dried flowers. This will help us get closer to finishing The Wheatsheaf, and you can be part of something unique and special.
HOW YOU CAN HELP...
All you need to do is to visit:
Then watch our video, and purchase any number of rewards like a voucher, beer tour, a cookery lesson from Ollie (semifinalist MasterChef) or even a private dining experience created just for you.
This is only available for 8 weeks and it is an "all or nothing" situation (i.e if we don't reach our target, the money is returned to the contributors), so please help and spread the word.
