About ChapmansladeWelcome to our village
Thanks for taking time to find out about our wonderful village.
Chapmanslade is a thriving and active West Wiltshire parish populated with some 650 inhabitants. We have a strong community spirit with a friendly, positive and welcoming outlook.
We are situated within a beautiful rural landscape, on the border with Somerset some 3 miles from the towns of Westbury, Frome and Warminster, all of which have regular direct train links to London. The Longleat estate, Salisbury Plain, Stonehenge, the beautiful Roman/Georgian City of Bath and the historic City of Salisbury are all close by, so you can see that we are well placed to access West Country history, culture and tourism.
Sitting on an east west ridge along the A3098, some 150m at its highest point, affords us wonderful views of the countryside whichever way one turns. As for facilities, we have a thriving pub, a church, a primary school, a pre-school, a village hall, a playing field, a children’s play area, many clubs and groups, and local businesses, all of which play an important part in parish life. Additional facilities, e.g. shops, supermarkets, health and leisure are readily available in the nearby towns accessed principally by car, as like most rural communities our local bus service is infrequent.
