Cherhill is a compact but elongated village just north of the A4 between Calne and Beckhampton. It has a recorded history as far back as 1377. In more recent years its population has risen and fallen in line with the histories of the now-extinct RAF bases at Compton Bassett and Yatesbury. In 1918 the Co-operative Wholesale Society purchased the estate that included Cherhill. Anecdotal evidence is that the CWS couldn't make their holdings of around 4600 acres pay and sold the lot in 1929-1930. Tenants of the various cottages were able to purchase the freeholds at a discount and many of them did it seems. Much more here LinkExternal link
