Stockbridge

Lying in the heart of Test Valley, the wide picturesque Stockbridge High Street reflects its early role as part of a drovers road where it was common to see flocks of sheep or herds of cattle being driven through the town on route from Wales. Seek out the Drovers House and you can still spot a sign in Welsh.

The town of Stockbridge with its long and varied history has inspired many poets over the years and there is a trail of 10 poems, set in stone, metal plaques and etched glass, for you to follow as you wander through the town centre, discovering its treasures.


River Test

The River Test flows under the high street and you can catch a glimpse of trout, if you are lucky. Founded in 1882, the Houghton Club is the oldest fishing club in England and is based in the town.


Shopping

There is an abundance of independent specialist shops including tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, many serving local produce, as well as art galleries, craft and gift shops, clothing specialists, a delicatessen and a traditional butchers. Stockbridge High Street was voted "best foodie street" in the 2010 Google Street View Awards.
