Stockton on Teme is a beautiful village with the Old Rectory at the heart of the valley, there are plenty of walks through the woodland and a chance to explore the “Dilly Holes” These were shallow mines that produced low quality coal up until the 1940’s. There is architecture and history dating back to 1130 with fascinating stories and relationships to neighbouring villages.
There is a very high level of schooling in the area. In the state sector there is Stockton Primary School, Great Witley Primary School and the renowned Chantry High School.
