Around Chiseldon, Wiltshire, England



We only have these few photographs of Around Chiseldon for now - we really must go back!  There are some beautiful old buildings here, mixed with new houses all surrounded by beautiful Wiltshire countryside.

The last two photographs came from our family photo album and are of a shop that used to be located in New Road.  The two owners were Lillian (nee Tydeman) and John Thomas Barrett - known as Jack.  We gather the shop sold pretty much everything!  In photo number 00004 we see uncle Jack in the grocery area - all sorts of tins, cakes and sweets.  The second photograph shows auntie Lillian serving a customer and on the shelving can be seen balls of wool, cards, handbags, shoes, books and jumpers.  What glorious photographs!

According to the Wiltshire Collections entry, the name has had various spellings - Chisledon, Chiselden and Ceosel-den.  Ceosel is Anglo-Saxon for gravel or sand, and dene means vale or plain.

More information about Chiseldon can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
