Lying in the heart of Test Valley Hampshire, 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.
These days, Stockbridge is a thriving community with plenty of sporting activities, shops, bars and restaurants which attract visitors from all over the world.
Stockbridge was awarded best "Foodie Street" in the acclaimed Google Street Awards in 2010, The High Street, which runs right through Stockbridge, was praised for its many independent specialist shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, many of which serve local produce.
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.
