Chute Forest is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England. It is about 5 miles (8km) north-west of Andover and 3 miles (1.75km) to the east of Ludgershall.

History

The area was a large royal forest by the 13th century and continued in Crown ownership until 1639. It was then an extra-parochial area until it became a civil parish in the 19th century, and an ecclesiastical parish in 1875 after the church was built.
