The village of CHEW STOKE sits at the northern end of Chew Valley Lake, 9 miles south of Bristol, 11 miles north of wells and 12 miles west of Bath.
Listed in the Domesday Book as Chiwestoche the suggestion is it may have had some military connection at the time – the name “Stoke” comes from the old English stoc meaning a stockade.
Served by a shop and garage, a pub, village restaurant, primary school, a medical centre and GP’s surgery and the multi-use Church Hall, the village also boasts a number of flourishing clubs and societies.
The buildings at Fairseat Farm, once a working dairy, have been converted to office and workshop use – spaces which include a hairdressing salon, a joinery, an artist’s studio, an osteopath practice, a flower design shop, and a TV and video business.
The village has a population of around a 1000 and lies at the foot of the Mendip Hills – designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
