Historical Description

STOKESAY is a township and parish on the river Onny and the road from Shrewsbury to Hereford, with a station on the Shrewsbury and Hereford section of the London and North-Western and Great Western joint railway, 22 miles from Shrewsbury and 7 north-west from Ludlow, in the Southern division of the county, lower division of Munslow hundred, Ludlow petty sessional division, union and county court district, rural deanery and archdeaconry of Ludlow and diocese of Hereford; a branch of the Roman road, “Watling street,” passes through the parish. The church of St. John, destroyed in the Civil war, was rebuilt in the year 1654, and the chancel in the year 1664: it is an edifice of stone, partly in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and an embattled western tower containing 6 bells, one of which is injured. The register dates from the year 1558. The living is a vicarage, average tithe rent-charge £259, net yearly value £200, with 5 ¼ acres of glebe, and residence, in the gift of and held since 1855 by the Rev. James Digues La Touche B. A. of Trinity College, Dublin. Here is a Primitive Methodist chapel built in 1880, and a Baptist chapel, built about 1871. Stokesay Castle, at the northern end of the valley through which the river Onny wends its way, is an almost unique specimen of an ancient fortified mansion of the 13th century, and, as now existing, consists of a large rectangular structure, containing a great hall with its solar or drawing room, at the north end of which is a low but massive tower, with an upper projecting storey of modern timber work: at the south-east angle is the great tower, 66 feet high, and the space on The eastern front of the mansion forms a courtyard, indosed by a wall and entered by a gatehouse on its east side: the whole building is surrounded by a moat, six feet deep, with an average breadth of twenty-two feet, in which some curiosities, now preserved in one of the rooms of the castle, have been found: the gatehouse, a gabled edifice of two storeys, is a fine example of the framed timber work of the Tudor period, still in excellent preservation, and in many parts richly carved; in the centre is a wide archway, with a door of great size and thickness and pierced for firearms: traces of other buildings, existing till about 1830, remain within the courtyard: the great hall is 53 feet 4 inches long by 31 feet 5 inches wide and 34 feet in height; massive arched beams, springing from stone corbels, support the roof, and on each side are lofty Early English windows with mullions and transoms, each rising into a gabled head; five of these have seats and those at the north end are of half-length only; towards the centre of the floor is an octagonal pavement on which formerly stood a brazier, the only provision for a fire, and the roof above is blackened with smoke: at the north end of the hall a flight of steps leads downward into a loop-holed apartment containing a well, fifteen feet deep; another staircase, constructed of solid oak baulk, leads to the rooms above, one of which has a good Early English fireplace: at the south end of the hall are two rooms, with a cellar below, and a solar, lighted by windows similar to those in the hall and retaining some of its elaborate wainscoting and a magnificent oaken chimney-piece of the later Stuart period: the great tower is formed as it were of two octagonal towers placed side by side and has thus a somewhat irregular outline; the walls, six feet in thickness, inclose a staircase which leads to the different floors and to the roof; each room is lighted by lancet windows with seats, and the battlements of the roof consist of large embrasures alternating with loop holes for cross-bowmen: on the north side is a small watch tower: from the date of Domesday to 1241 this manor was chiefly held by the de Lacys, but about 1115 the de Says, who came from Sez in Normandy, were enfeoffed by the Lacys of this property, and the remains of the northern tower are believed to be a portion of their residence; the hall is considered to have been built by John de Verdon in 1240: in 1290-1 the place was held by Lawrence de Ludlow, who obtained letters patent from Edward I. for the fortifying of the mansion and thereupon erected the south tower: during the Civil war the castle was garrisoned for the king, but on the second summons, the governor, Capt. Dawrett, surrendered to the Parliamentary forces under Lieut. Riveling; on the conclusion of the war it was partly dismantled and became more or less dilapidated until repaired by the late Earl of Craven; J. D. Allcroft esq. father of the present owner Herbert John Allcroft esq. at very considerable expense and with much skill and judgment, completely restored the whole building. The charities are of £10 yearly value, arising from a bequest by Thomas Powell. An important cattle fair is held monthly. On a steep hill to the eastward are the remains of a Roman encampment called Norton's Camp, in a very perfect state of preservation and surrounded by two ditches. At the foot of this camp is a group of farm buildings, surrounded by green meadows; when, a few years since, the foundations of these buildings were being laid, the workmen came upon a number of human skeletons, probably of soldiers killed in an encounter which took place here June 19th, 1645, between the King’s troops, under Sir Michael Woodhouse, governor of Ludlow, and the Roundheads, under Col. Mackworth, in which Sir William Croft and about 100 men were killed, Col. Thomas Broughton, with other officers, Mr. Richard Richardson, surgeon, and many soldiers taken prisoners, and the Royalists completely defeated; close by may be seen a bit of stone wall and a pavement, the only relics, of the mill mentioned in Domesday. Herbert John Allcroft esq. J. P. of Stokesay Castle, is lord of the manor and principal landowner. The soil is clayey, limey and gravelly; the subsoil is blue clay. The chief crops are wheat, oats and barley. The area of the parish is 3,635 acres of land and 26 of water; rateable value, £10,786;, the population in 1891 was 942.

A School Board of 5 members was formed 12 Oct. 1892, for the parish of Stokesay, William Medlicott, clerk to the board.

Board School (mixed), built in 1858 & enlarged in 1886, for 162 children; average attendance, 150; there is a house for the master.

A new school for 300 children is now (1895) being erected at Craven Arms.
