Chicklade is a small village and civil parish in Wiltshire in southern England. The village is on the A303 road, about 7 miles (11 km) south of Warminster. The parish includes the hamlet of Upper Pertwood in the northwest corner of the parish.

The Great Ridge Wood, formerly also known as Chicklade Wood, is less than a mile north of the village, just over the parish boundary.


The Church of England parish church of All Saints was built in 1832 to designs in 12th-century style by J.B. Papworth. It stands on the site of a 12th-century church.

Pertwood also had a 12th-century church, St Peter's, which was rebuilt in 1872. The ecclesiastical parish of Pertwood was separate until 1899 when it was united with Chicklade, then in 1921, Chicklade with Pertwood was united with Hindon ecclesiastical parish. The church at Pertwood was declared redundant in 1972.

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