Chilfrome is a small village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southwest England. It lies in the West Dorset administrative district, approximately northwest of the county town Dorchester. It is situated between the villages of Cattistock and Maiden Newton in the upper reaches of the Frome Valley in the Dorset Downs. The parish church was largely restored in 1864, though it has a thirteenth-century chancel-arch, a partly fourteenth-century nave, and windows dating from the fifteenth century. Dorset County Council estimate that in 2013 the population of the civil parish was 40.
