The quiet and attractive town of Stonehouse lies a little to the west of Stroud.

It is a typical market town that has grown up either side of an intersecting road, the B4008.

There is a mixture of residential and industrial development, as well as agriculture. Stonehouse has a good range of shops, services and leisure facilities. One of the attractions of living in the area is its closeness to open countryside.

Leonard Stanley Church of England Primary School; King's Stanley Infant School; Maidenhill School; Park Junior School; St Joseph's Catholic Primary School; The Park Infant School and Early Years Centre.

Stonehouse has a good variety of shops including a traditional baker and butcher, general stores, supermarkets, post office, banks, building societies and a renowned hardware store.

Bethel Pentecostal Church, St Cyrs COfE Church, St Joseph RC Church.

As well as takeaways and pub food, there is formal dining, particularly at the Stonehouse Court Hotel.

Stonehouse has some well-established pubs: The Woolpack, The Globe, The Brewers Arms, and The Spa Inn.

The town offers a variety of activities including youth clubs, football teams, a karate club and church clubs.

Buses run regularly to Stroud and Gloucester. Stonehouse also has a main-line station, which connects with London Paddington via Swindon in one direction and with South Wales via Gloucester and the Midlands via Cheltenham in the other.

    This misleading information is nothing more than estate agent's spiel to sell houses.

    So how long have the Stanleys been in Stonehouse? They have their own identities - and many in each village feel separate from the other - and their own shopping, churches and activities not mentioned. So what's the point of an article that includes two other localities but omits Eastington and even lists a pub that was not even the Brewers Arms a bit before it closed when it was known as Whacker's Place, now a nursery.

    How old is this article? The Brewers Arms closed years ago, it's a Nursery now I believe. Very lazy TiG!
