Rodney Stoke is a civil parish and small village situated within the ceremonial county of Somerset, in the south western part of the United Kingdom. The village is located five miles to the north west of Wells, on the A371 between Draycott and Westbury-sub-Mendip, and is in fact within an important area of high biodiversity supporting local and rare species of plants and animal life.
The history of Rodney Stoke
The village today known as Rodney Stoke has a long history of habitation and was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was recorded as having been called Stoches. This name comes from the Old English word for a ‘stockaded settlement’ and therefore tells us that the earliest example of the village was fortified. It is thought that the village gained the ‘Rodney’ part of its name during the 16th or 17th century, and was thus named for the noted local nobleman Sir John Rodney.
In more modern history, Rodney Stoke holds an interesting distinction as being one of Somerset’s seven so-called ‘Thankful Villages’, which were settlements that incredibly fortunately did not lose any of their residents during the First World War.
Rodney Stoke today
Today, as it has largely been throughout its history, Rodney Stoke remains a quiet and unassuming village with a relatively low level of population. This population was put at 1,326 by the most recently available data and means that when it comes to compensation, for expert solicitors Rodney Stoke is a largely unlikely source of claims.
