Litton Cheney is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in south-west England. It lies within the West Dorset administrative district, west of the county town Dorchester. It is sited beneath chalk hills in the valley of the small River Bride. In the 2001 Census the village had a population of 348.

On Pins Knoll to the west of the village was once an Iron Age settlement, excavated in 1959. On this site in the 4th century there was also a Romano-British building.[1]

The parish church of St Mary dates mostly from the 15th century, but was restored in 1878.[1]

From 1953 until 1979, The Old Rectory was the home of noted English engraver, designer, typographer and painter Reynolds Stone.
