About Stoke by Clare

Set around a pleasant green at its centre is the site of a Norman Benedictine Priory now incorporated into a college.

Recorded in Domesday as "Stoches".

Cropmarks on Chapel Farm may indicate the location of a Roman ritual site.

Stoke by Clare Station was on the Stour Valley Railway, which ran from Shelford (near Cambridge) to Marks Tey. Part of the line (from Sudbury to Marks Tey) is still in use.
