Chaddleworth is a small village on the southern slopes of the downs. The houses and cottages are well spread out around the village and there is no recognisable village centre. There is an assortment of modern houses and period thatched cottages which are mainly spread out along a hill.

The village pub (which has been closed for some time and was in the process of renovation at the time of my visit) is in the lower part of the village while the village church is in the upper part of the village in the grounds of Chaddleworth House.

St. Andrew's Church is largely late 12th century. The upper portion of the tower was rebuilt in the 15th century and a new chancel was added in 1851. The main south doorway is a fine example of Norman zig-zag work. Inside the church there are two small transepts known as 'family pews' which were built by the Blandy & Wroughton families in 1706 and 1810 respectively and are the best examples of their kind in the county. There is also a large collection of monuments to the Nelsons of Chaddleworth House, the Tippings and Wroughtons of Woolley Park, the Blandys of Oakash and to Mary and Dorothy Nelson.

Chaddleworth is about a mile east of the A338 Wantage to Hungerford road and about three miles north of the M4 motorway.
