The Carter Institute in Clanfield was built in 1906 funded by our benefactor Amelia Carter.The Carter Institute was originally built to provide the men of the parish with a "reading room" as an alternative to "wasting" free time in the village hostelries- of which there were several!!


Since construction in 1906 The Carter Institute in Clanfield has remained a central part of the fabric of the village and contributes greatly to the special traditional ambience that the village still retains.
The Carter Institute is self funded from income derived from property rental, hire fees, fundraising and donations. Management of the Carter Institute is by successive management committees of volunteers from the community who donate their professional skills and experience. In the years since 1906 The Carter Institute in Clanfield has evolved into the Clanfield Village Hall 
and has now hosted meetings and celebrations of local groups, families and businesses for 106 years. 

It is beautiful period building comprising a hall, meeting room, terrace, large lawn, modern kitchen, extensive toilet facilities including disabled facilities and baby changing facilities, a billiard and snooker club and extensive car parking.

The Carter Institute is maintained to a very high standard and is an ideal venue in which to host family celebrations, club and society meetings, educational and sports classes,training sessions, business meetings, sales or other commercial events.

The terrace and extensive front lawn provides an out door area to extend entertaining to include BBQ, Hog Roast, Marquee and childrens entertainment.
