The Archaeology of the Old Church of St Mary, East Stoke
Wednesday 16th July 2014
The ‘Old Church’ project was a shared initiative between the School of Applied Sciences at Bournemouth University and the East Stoke Heritage and Archaeological group, financially supported by a Heritage Lottery Initiative.
The Old Church of St Mary is approximately 2.6km west of Wareham and 1.2km east of Wool. At Stokeford, on the south side of the A352 stands the early nineteenth-century of St Mary the Virgin, immediately beyond which a minor road crosses the Poole to Weymouth railway, and bridges the River Frome. The settlement of Stoke where the site of the ruined Old Church can be found is ca northwest of Manor Farm.
