Set within rolling hills and tranquil beauty it is hard to believe that the town was once branded a ‘rotten borough’ as it was known in the 1700s; an abundance of picturesque Hampshire villages can also be found not far from Stockbridge with their pretty churches and traditional country pubs as well as the magnificent Test Way. Poetry lovers will also be impressed to know that the beauty of Stockbridge has inspired many writers, there is also a poetry trail of ten poems, set in stone, metal, and glass that are peppered throughout the town centre.
