'Stoulton' a unique place-name. It is attached to just one village and the parish the village sits in.  


The story of Stoulton in south Worcestershire, UK, goes back to a time when three ancient settlements, Stoulton, Mucknell and Wolverton, were distant farmsteads belonging to the Bishop of Worcester’s Kempsey Estate.  A King's Charter, written in 840 AD, indicates that Stoulton, Mucknell and Wolverton, were returned to the Bishop of Worcester by King Bertwulf of Mercia after the bishop had been unjustifiably deprived of them! 


What made Stoulton, Mucknell and Wolverton significant enough to warrant a King's Charter?  


More than a thousand years later time travellers from Stoulton are still searching for answers to this and  other secrets of Stoulton's hidden past. This website brings you an unfinished story.
