ABOUT OUR VILLAGE.  Chapmanslade is a vibrant and friendly Wiltshire village populated with some 675 happy souls. Situated in wonderful countryside on the border with Somerset, the Village stretches both sides along the road between Westbury and Frome, some 3 miles from Warminster. Chapmanslade enjoys it's own Pub, Church, School, Pre-schools, Village Hall, Recreation Ground, Children’s Playground, together with many local clubs, societies, activites and small businesses. There are numerous footpaths with walks through the countryside to our sister village Corsley, to the imposing Cley Hill and to the Longleat estate, not forgetting walks through our very own Black Dog Wood.
