Littleworth, Wiltshire

Milton Lilbourne is a village and civil parish in the English county of Wiltshire and lies in Pewsey Vale between Pewsey and Burbage.

Milton Lilbourne's population was listed on the Kennet District Council website as 512 in 2006. These days it is largely a mixed residential area centred around the Manor. The nearest shops are in Pewsey about 2 miles away. The parish is unusual in that it has a long thin shape and is one of the few to have boundaries on the uplands to both south and north of the Vale. The southern boundary passes by a long barrow and the northern one abuts the prehistoric fort on Martinsell Hill.

Facilities include St Peter's Church, with elements dating back to the 12th century, and the Village Hall with its playing fields. On the Pewsey-Burbage road (B3087) in the area known as Little Salisbury stood the Three Horse Shoes pub, closed in 2009. North of the village and that road is the hamlet of Littleworth; beyond, the hamlets of New Mill and Milkhouse Water are within the parish boundary.

The village has had a football team called 'Milton Lilbourne FC' who played in the under-15's age group.
