St Denys, Chilworth a listed place of worship

A Victorian church building on the site of an ancient place of worship in Chilworth Old Village. The church is close to the University Science Park and Chilworth Manor Hotel.

The church stands on the site of a probably Saxon - Norman church which dating back to C12. The present Parish Church was completed in 1820 and only faint traces of the previous construction remain. The village of Chilworth has grown South and east from the church, so that it retains the feel of a country church despite its proximity to the University of Southampton Science Park and the modern village.
