Isle of Wight - Chale
Chale is a village and civil parish on the Isle of Wight,
England. It is located three kilometres from Niton in the south of
the Island in the area known as the Back of the Wight. The village
of Chale lies at the foot of St. Catherine's Down.
Chale is recorded in the Domesday book as "Cela", which probably
derives from the Old English word "ceole", meaning "throat". This is
thought to refer to the nearby ravine or chine at Blackgang. The
name was also recorded as "Chele" or "Chielle", but it has been "Chale"
since the 12th century.
There were 3 manors in Chale at the time of the Domesday Book: Chale,
Gotten and Walpen.
