For the latest Village news, please see Chaddleworth Newsletters.

The village 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.

Chaddleworth Hardship Fund

This charity was enacted in 1813 to provide fuel and ‘necessaries’ for the people of Chaddleworth Parish. This charity has now been updated to become the Chaddleworth Hardship Fund.

 The Trustees of this fund (the Parish Council) would like to help the village during this unprecedented pandemic. If you find yourself in financial difficulties for the foreseeable future please apply to the Parish Clerk by email to chaddleworth@outlook.com the Trustees will look at your application (in strictest confidence) and may award you a loan or other financial help.

DEFIBRILLATOR

We are delighted to announce 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.
