If you are moving house, looking to start a new life in Halstock or retiring to Halstock, we can help you.
Do you fancy living in a lovely village community? Perhaps one which has its own headless ghost?
Halstock in Dorset, which is about five miles from Yeovil in Somerset, has possibly one of the most united communities in rural Dorset.
The jewel in its crown is the popular village shop and Post Office, which is run by just three paid employees and around 20 volunteers.
The shop, which offers a regular newsletter and sells everything from rusks to reading glasses, was created by the community nearly 30 years ago.
The group of locals worked tirelessly to provide a community-owned shop which would also offer community facilities.
Last year the shop was named by the national charity the Plunkett Foundation as its Centenary Community Business.
Elsewhere in the village, which has a population nearing 600, there are lots of activities on offer. There is a camera club, a community theatre group and village cinema, a British Legion group, a gardening club and Artsreach productions. It also hosts a weekly youth club, which pulls in youngsters from around the area.
Children are bussed to nearby Stickland’s School in Evershot and Beaminster secondary.
But what about that ghost, I hear you ask? Well…
The village church St Juthware and St Mary’s is in part dedicated to St Juthware, (Judith) a Saxon saint, who was killed in Halstock.
Her brother cut off her head with his sword, believing their Evil Stepmother’s claim she was pregnant and, it is said, Judith picked up her head and walked into the church and placed it on the altar as an offering to God. She was buried in the church at Halstock, but in the 10th century her relics were taken to Sherborne for final burial. Many miracles are said to have occurred at her tomb.
The local inn, which is now a B&B, is called The Quiet Woman in tribute to Judith, and its sign depicted Judith carrying her own head.
Ghost hunters believe she still walks the streets of Halstock…
