The town of Stonehouse, England is nestled within Gloucestershire County in the District of Stroud. Stonehouse is also one of the most urbanised towns lying within the Stroud District and gets its name from Stanhus. There are a couple of major factories which can be found in the town of Stonehouse as well as many different churches which cover a variety of faiths from Roman Catholicism to Methodist and Anglican faiths. The town features an impressive roadway structure, in part to its many factories and its location to the M5 Motorway. Furthermore there is a regular train service which runs to and from London, this railway system in the town of Stonehouse also connects to Bristol, but this connection has been in decay for sometime. Although there is talk of reopening the connection to Bristol, it has yet to happen but may sometime in the near future.
One of the most historically important accounts of the town of Stonehouse happened in the 1086 William the Conqueror's Domesday Book. In the book, Stonehouse was mentioned in its original name of Stanhus. The house mentioned in the book stands out from the rest of the homes as it was a manor house which was built of stone. The original owner of this manor house was William’s cousin, William De Ow. On the property which the manor house used to stand are two mills which are still used today for the regional industry. There is even a vineyard on the estate which is assumed to have developed originally by the Romans who introduced grapes to the region. While the manor house burnt down in 1908, it has since been replaced and in its place can be found the majestic Stonehouse Court Hotel.
The town of Stonehouse has a rich history in the industrial revolution as the Stroudwater Navigation canal ran through the area originally before being cut. Still today there can be found an old iron swing bridge which used to cross the canal. The town also had a shipyard as well as a lengthy history of railway lines running through its station.
Probably the most well-noted site in town though is Wycliffe College which although no longer a college, it is focused towards education and is open today as a private school. While virtually the entire town was originally built using locally quarried stone, this quarry has since been shut down and almost all of the newer homes which were built or renovated since the quarry closed have used red clay bricks. This is an interesting point as it allows you to judge the older homes in town by the stone used in the construction of them.
