Chaddleworth Defibrillator

Chaddleworth has a defibrillator installed in the telephone box opposite The Ibex Inn.  If you come across someone who has had a cardiac arrest, its vital to call 999 and start CPR. They will give you the code to the cabinet where you will find the defibrillator. You shouldn’t be afraid of using a defibrillator as anyone can use them in an emergency by following clear spoken instructions, you don’t need training to use one.  Lets hope we don’t have to use it, but its a reassurance to know the Village has one.  Any questions or technical matters concerning the defibrillator, please contact the Parish Clerk via

Defibrillators are devices that send an electric pulse or shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat. They are used to prevent or correct an arrhythmia, an uneven heartbeat that is too slow or too fast. If the heart suddenly stops, defibrillators can also help it beat again. If you should find yourself in the situation where someone needs a Defibrillator, on calling 999, they will be able to tell you where the nearest Defibrillator is located and provide the cabinet code to take the Defibrillator to the patient. The Defibrillator will then instruct you on what to do while waiting for an ambulance. This could save someone’s life!

Welcome to Chaddleworth Parish

The parish of Chaddleworth lies below the southern slopes of the Berkshire Downs, just east of the A338 road, which runs between Hungerford and Wantage to form the western parish boundary. The south-east corner of the village is called Nodmore and the hamlet of Southend sits only a mile to the north-east. In the north of the parish is Woolley and in the south is Poughley, both barely hamlets now. Woolley Down rises above the former. The parish mostly consists of farmland, with some scattered woodland such as Nine Acre Wood, Spray Wood, Down Copse, Rooksnest Copse and Bassdown Copse. The West Berkshire Golf Course, on Buckham Hill, and the northern edge of RAF Welford are in Poughley.
