    Halstock – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. On The Road Again
      Halstock sits on the Harrow Way, an ancient road that dates back to the Stone Age along which archaeologists have unearthed relics dating from 600 – 450 BC. The route runs from Dover in Kent, through Maidstone, Guildford, Winchester through to Seaton in Devon. There are several theories behind its existence, that it might have been a route for trading tin and other wares, some believe it was the road that worshipers took to Stonehenge. The Eastern part of the route later become the Pilgrim’s Way, from Winchester to Canterbury, as featured in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
    2. St Judith
      St Juthware is the tale of a young woman by the name of Juthwara. Local legend tells of young Judith and a wicked stepmother, although it’s slightly more sinister than a modern fairytale. Her stepmother told her brother that Juthwara had become pregnant, he was so incensed that he picked up his sword and cut off her head. Juthwara picked up her head and carried it to the church. After being venerated as St Juthware she became a favourite saint of Ethelred the Unready, her relics appeared at a number of churches (relics were big business!) and her name later modernised to St Judith. The Quiet Woman pub was named in her honour and the pub sign once showed the image of a woman, carrying her head… One for the road perhaps? By the way… some say her ghost still haunts the village!
    3. Stuart Coppice
      An area of woodland was named after Charles Stuart, King Charles I, because the trees were pruned back regularly, or to be more succinct, had their heads chopped off.
    4. Forum
      In 1867 workers dug up the remains of a Roman villa, unfortunately the very excited locals came looking for treasure and much of what had been a mosaic floor was destroyed. The site was excavated again in 1967 and 1985 and what’s left now lies under a golf course.
    5. You Don’t Have To Be Mad To Live Here…
      Many locals will happily claim that it’s not a surprise to find that one of England’s earliest lunatic asylums was built in Halstock. At the time it wasn’t purely somewhere for those suffering from mental health, sadly inmates could also be anyone with learning difficulties, disabilities, ‘loose women’ (not the TV presenters) and all kinds of miscreants could find themselves locked away with sometimes little chance of release.
    6. Order, Order!
      The plans for the interior of St Mary’s church was designed by Augustin Pugin, the man who rebuilt the House of Commons. Unfortunately, much of his design was ignored and so went unused but it would have made a great claim to fame for the village.
