Welcome to Stoke St Gregory

Welcome to the website of Stoke St Gregory, which is a lively rural village of some 950 inhabitants in the district of Taunton Deane, lying between Curry Moor and the River Tone to the north-west, and West Sedgemoor to the south-east. Dairy farming forms the main activity, while a small number of businesses continue withy-growing and basket-making which used to be the major industry in the area. The village has a primary school, two churches, and a community pub and shop.

The Somerset Levels and Moors form a very particular landscape. Artificially drained since the 12th century, they are rich in wildlife, particularly wading birds attracted by winter floods. All of the moors around Stoke St Gregory are Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and there is a network of footpaths open to the public.

Stoke St Gregory has a reputation for being an energetic and friendly community with a lot going on. A glance at the Calendar, News and Activities sections will give a taste of what is on offer, and there is plenty more beneath the radar.
