Your Parish Website




Stogursey is a civil parish and small village in the Quantock Hills in Somerset, England. At the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the village was known simply as Stoke, meaning a farm or small settlement, usually one dependant on a larger settlement. The village is situated near the Bristol Channel, which bounds the parish on the north. The parish includes the village of Stolford, (which is believed to mean ‘The stile ford’ from the Old English stigol and ford), and the hamlets of Burton, Knighton, Shurton and Wick.

The villages of Stogursey in Somerset, UK and Lonlay L’Abbaye in Normandy, France have been successfully and closely twinned since 1985.
