small hamlet of Chilfrome is situated amongst the hedges and
trees on the western edge of the water meadows between Maiden Newton and
Cattistock. Clustered around a crossroads in the lane which runs through
the hamlet are a few cottages, farms and a couple of larger houses.
Recently some modern development has intruded on this quiet backwater.
small church of The Holy Trinity was originally 13th century, but is now
mostly mid 19th century. Despite it' small size Chilfrome had its own
parson up until the early part of the 20th century when the pastoral
duties passed to the incumbent at Cattistock.
