Chilwell was originally a hamlet on the road from Nottingham to Ashby-de-la-Zouch It is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but along with Toton it became part of the parish of Attenborough Suburban development spread gradually from Beeston along Chilwell High Road

The area's population grew substantially during World War I when most of the area of level ground between Chilwell and Toton was occupied by the National Shell Filling Factory No 6 and the original direct route between Chilwell and Toton became a gated military road, now known as Chetwynd Road

On 1 July 1918, 134 people were killed in an explosion at the factory, with over 250 people injured in the explosion This tragedy remains the largest number of deaths caused by a single explosion in Britain1 The memorial to the dead can be found in nearby church yard of St Mary's, Attenborough

The army continued to dominate the area with the factory becoming a major depot site for the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, and more recently for the Royal Engineers The Chilwell Bypass Road was constructed in the 1930s to take army traffic out of the village centre

Chilwell had a number of pubs in its centre on Chilwell High Road The Original Chequers Inn is on the border with Beeston and is a turn of the century pub that was once a coaching house, The Charlton Arms is named after a local landowning family who formerly lived in the now demolished Chilwell Hall The Cadland is named after a locally trained racehorse that won The Derby in 1828 The Double Top and the Inham Nook There is also a modern pub, The Cornmill, on Nottingham Road There is a large retail park and hotel The Village on the Attenborough border

Chilwell has had a long-standing non-conformist population The Chilwell Methodist Church was founded in 1798 as the Methodist First Connection Chapel at Hallams Lane Its Sunday School provided jointly with local Baptists provided the first free education for the poor of the area The chapel moved to land provided by Squire Charlton in 18571 Christ Church, Chilwell was built in 1903 to provide an Anglican church to serve the growing population, although it did not become a separate ecclesiastical parish from Attenborough until 1975

The Inham Nook estate was built by Beeston and Stapleford Urban District Council on land to the west of Bramcote Lane from the 1950s and St Barnabas's Church was constructed in 1957 as a "mission church" to serve the new population For many years, Inham Nook's council housing was in sharp contrast to the surrounding areas of middle class suburban owner-occupation Since the 1980s right to buy legislation, tenure has been more mixed, but Inham Nook remains relatively deprived compared to other areas in the southern part of Broxtowe borough However Broxtowe borough council in partnership with NET have recently spent £100,000 on refurbishment works to the Inham Nook sports pavilion to help improve local facilities for the community The works included updating the changing facilities for local football teams, and improving the bowls facilities and accessibility to the pavilion The works were carried out by local contractor GPS Construction Nottingham

Chilwell Manor Golf Club was established in 1906 on land formerly belonging to the Manor The Manor House and nearby Chilwell Green remained intact until 1965 when the bland Clarkes Lane development of large detached houses started construction

Chilwell School is located off Queens Road West adjacent to the golf course It shares a site and facilities with the Chilwell Olympia Sports Centre Prior to construction of the school in the 1970s, this area was Kirk's Farm It had remained undeveloped as the land has a high water table and poor drainage A hectare of the school grounds was not drained for playing fields and is now the Chilwell Meadow nature reserve managed by the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust as a rare example of a "wet meadow" of unimproved grassland

Parts of the golf course are also sites of importance for nature conservation, and there has been some work in recent years to remove non-native species in the golf-course planting to improve bio-diversity


Chilwell population is 14,024 with the average household at 230 with the population density per hectare at 4430

At the 2011 Census Chilwell had 2 wards East and West The total population of these two wards was 12,86423

There are 902% White British and 98% with people from 35 different countries with large majorities from India, Pakistan, France, Germany, Poland, Jamaica, China, Ecuador, Australia, Ireland and the USA4
