Chicklade is a small village in the County of Wiltshiremarker, in the south west of Englandmarker.

Location

The village lies on the A303 road a little over one mile north of Hindon. On the A303, it has a service station with a Little Chef restaurant.

History

Chicklade centres on its medieval parish church.

Parish registers survive from 1722 and are kept in the Wiltshire and Swindon Archives.

The poet William Lisle Bowles was vicar of Chicklade from 1792 to 1797.
