Parish History

(OE, stoc= place of the Earl) is an exceedingly pretty village, a little to the E. of Edington. The present church (St. Savior)  was built in 1880 by G. E. Street, R. A..
The old church stood on lower ground, as did the old mansion, the residence at one time of Matthew Fitzherbert, one of Henry III's judges. The present house commands some glorious views: beautiful woodland scenery, and the great vale of the Bristol Avon away to the N. and W., and the mass of Salisbury Plain immediately to the S. Cobbett writes in very appreciative style of the village: 'The houses stand at a few yards from each other on the two sides of the road; every house is white, and the front of every one is covered with some sort of clematis, or with rose trees or jasmines'. [The Little Guides, published by Methuen 1949]
