Chilton

The building

Since Norman times villagers have worshipped God on this spot, and perhaps even before that, as there was a village here in Saxon times, mentioned in the Doomsday Book as Ciltone. All traces of the Norman church have disappeared except for some stones in the northern wall of the nave and a fragment of 12th century work over the doorway in the south transept.

Chilton church is unusually interesting on account of the curious development of its plan, and because there are examples of all the main architectural styles of Mediaeval times.
