Situated four miles south-east of Romsey, this well-wooded parish lies between the boundaries of Eastleigh and Southampton Dist ricts. The southern part of the parish has been developed as a dormitory area for Southampton, but the original hamlet of Chilworth is tucked away in a hollow near the parish church. The church of St. Denys dates from the early C.19 and has several interesting architectural features as well as bells said to date from the C.12. The line of the Roman road from Otterbourne to the New Forest passes diagonally through the parish, and a branch of the M27 crosses the southern part of the parish.
