Stockbridge is a village between Andover and Romsey, close to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury. It is set in the famous Test Valley, which has some of the best fly-fishing in England. The Grosvenor Hotel in the High Street, which is over 250 years old, attracts many fishing visitors. The Houghton Fishing Club, the oldest fishing club in England, is based at the hotel. Opposite the hotel, is the 19th century Town Hall. The River Test flows under the High Street and it is possible to glimpse brown trout from the pavement.
Stockbridge has a wide irregular High Street, with houses of all styles, but mainly Tudor and Georgian. The High Street was part of a drovers’ road from Wales. Flocks of sheep and herds of cattle were driven along here. Visitors are well served by the traditional tea shops, gift shops, restaurants and inns, including the 600 year old The Three Cups Inn.
