St Denys' church stands on the site of a probably Saxon - Norman church which dates to the 12th century. 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 being next the modern village and the University of Southampton Science Park.
Today, the church is open for pilgrims and visitors alike 10am - 4pm every day (note: there is a service at 9:30 on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month) . If you are intending to travel a long distance we welcome advance contact from visitors.
