Our place-name.  -  'Stoulton' -  is unique!  It is attached to just one village, our village and to the one parish in which that village sits!  Stoulton can be found in south Worcestershire between the town of Pershore and the Cathedral city of Worcester.  


The story of Stoulton goes back well before the year 844 when three, small, seemingly insignificant, farming settlements, called Stoulton, Mucknell and Wolverton, were returned to the Bishop of Worcester by King Bertwulf of Mercia. Apparently the bishop had been unjustifiably deprived of them!  Why?


What was was so special about these three places that this event was recorded in a King's Charter?  More than a thousand years later amateur historians from today's Stoulton still search for answers to this and other questions about  Stoulton's past. This website brings you all we know of its an unfinished and still evolving story.
