Stourton Caundle

Stourton Caundle is a tranquil Dorset village – enjoyed by locals, passers by, and holidaymakers.

Through four centuries of change, The Trooper Inn has continued to serve as the hub of the community.
Long ago the pub was known as the Catherine Wheel. In the early 19th century, it was used as a signing-on point for soldiers heading for the Napoleonic Wars and became known as The Trooper Inn.
Many of the existing cottages in Stourton Caundle date from around that time.
The parish church is of interest with its thirteenth-century nave and chancel, and fourteenth-century tower.


Present Day

Today Stourton Caundle is a thriving village community with its own magazine – The Stourton Caundler.

Stourton Caundle also has its own village website, from which some of the above information was gratefully borrowed.
