Kilmington is a village and civil parish in the extreme west of Wiltshire, England. The parish includes the hamlet of Norton Ferris.

It lies on the northern edge of the ancient Selwood Forest. Whitesheet Hill is in the far east of the parish, and Long Knoll (288m above sea level) is a long ridge on the northern boundary of the parish.

Until 1896 Kilmington was in Somerset.[1] The parish was part of the Norton Ferris Hundred.[2]

In 1556 Kilmington was the scene of the ambush and murder of two members of the Hartgilll family by Charles Stourton, 8th Baron Stourton, for which crime he was convicted and executed.
