    Stockbridge – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. I Name Thee…
      Stockbridge’s name is fairly simple in origin. A crossing point for the River Test, ‘stocks’ is an old term for ‘tree trunks’, so it’s a likely guess that the name referred to a wooden bridge across the river around which a settlement built up.
    2. Fishing Test
      No, not an exam for anglers, we’re referring to the River Test which is a stunning stretch of water and flows under the high street. Trout are the catch of the day and Stockbridge is home to England’s oldest fishing club, the Houghton Club, formed in 1882.
    3. Trout ‘n’ About
      Every August the town celebrates its standing as a destination for foodies with a large market featuring over 100 stalls offering all kinds of local produce, artisan treats and of course Trout. Smoked fish, buffalo, venison, ice creams, jams, relishes, breads, cheese, it’s a giant smorgasbord of delicious goodies to sample and take away, all served up in this picturesque location. Yum!
    4. Thoroughly Rotten
      Stockbridge was one of many ‘Rotten Boroughs’, this referred to a town where political influence was bought or often threatened by wealthy employers and landowners (locals often faced losing their employment and home if they didn’t vote as instructed by the local power who was often MP, mill owner and landlord). In 1832 the Reform Act was passed so that votes could be cast in secret (until then it was often done by a show of hands). Stockbridge, which had two MPs up until this point, was reduced to one and residents were free to vote without fear.
    5. End of the Anarchy
      The Anarchy was a bloody rebellion by the Empress Maude and against King Stephen of England. The war raged for a number of years and Stockbridge myth claims that it was in the town in 1141 that Robert of Gloucester, who was formerly one of Stephen’s closest friends but later Maude’s chief military leader, was captured which finally brought about the end of the war.The Swan Inn (which still stands), is also the spot where Kind James II stopped in 1688, on his way to face The Prince of Orange in another battle and challenge to the throne.
    6. Poetry In Motion
      If you’re feeling poetic you can take a walk through the town and follow a trail of 10 poems that have been set in glass, stone and metal around the town. And we suggest you enjoy a few eateries along the way with plenty of pubs and tea rooms to choose from.
