Chiseldon Parish Plan

CLHG Members may be interested to know that a number of villagers are working on a new plan that will guide Parish Council priorities over the next few years.  You can take part in this consultation - please click here.

They are also organising several Placecheck Walks around the villages - simple walks that allow you to point out things you like, things you don’t like and things that could be improved.

Look out for dates and times here.

Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, February 17th at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.

'Brick-Making in North Wiltshire'

Speaker: Mike Stone.

Before the Industrial Revolution, brick workings were small enterprises, production was seasonal and there were few kilns.  With the demands of the Industrial Revolution, brick-making increased to satisfy the needs of new industries.

Tonight’s illustrated talk will look at the development of brick-making in the north of our county, with particular focus on the Swindon area.  There was a brick-making works in Chiseldon Parish until the 1970s, just off Dayhouse Lane.

Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors.  Why not join us?  Membership is still only £10 a year.  For details of the 2016 programme of talks and events, click here.

Chiseldon Museum
The Museum is now closed for the winter and will re-open next April.  We will be working on new displays for 2016 and would welcome suggestions.  Please let us know if you have an idea for a display.

We can offer talks to interested groups on the village and its history, on the Cauldrons and on Chiseldon Camp. Please get in touch via the website, email or phone for more details.
