Sightseeing
Stonehouse, Gloucestershire is town and urban area within the Stroud District, in the UK. It is home to a number of factories, such as Dairy Crest, Schlumberger, Renishaw and Dairy Partners. The town is close to the M5 motorway. Stonehouse railway station has a regular train service to London. The town is situated approximately nine miles south of the centre of Gloucester and three miles west of the centre of Stroud (though following recent development it is largely connected to Stroud).HistoryStonehouse ManorStonehouse was mentioned in Willam the Conqueror's Domesday Book written in 1086. There was a manor house built in stone - quite different from the many wattle and daub buildings that were normally found. And so the area was named Stanhus in the book. The name evoluted from Stanhus to Stonehouse : stān > stone + hūs > house, as an effect of the great vowel shift at the end of the Middle Ages.William De Ow, a cousin of William the Conqueror, owned the manor, whose grounds included two mills and a vineyard. In 1327, one of the manor's masters, John Maltravers, was found guilty of involvement in the murder of Edward II in Berkeley Castle, and fled abroad.
