Stourton with Gasper is a civil parish in the English county of Wiltshire. The parish includes the village of Stourton, along with the hamlets of Bonham and Gasper. It is close to the county boundary with Somerset, about 8.5mi south of the Somerset market town of Frome, and some 1.5mi north of the A303 trunk road.The village of Stourton is part of the Stourhead estate, now in the ownership of the National Trust, and the entrance to the estate's famous house and garden is through the village. To the east of the village lies the steep slopes and downland of White Sheet Hill, a section of which is within the civil parish.HistoryStourton with Gasper consists of three ancient manors: Stourton, Bonham and Gasper. The hamlets of Bonham and Gasper were in the Norton Ferris Hundred of Somerset until 1895, when a boundary revision transferred the Somerset portion of the parish to Wiltshire.BuildingsThe Church of England parish church of St Peter at Stourton has 14th-century origins but has been much restored and altered; it is Grade I listed. It contains monuments of the Hoare family, owners of the estate. The architect and mason Nathaniel Ireson was churchwarden in the 1720s and may have done work on the church himself. The antiquarian William Coxe was rector from 1801 to 1811.
