Bapton Fisherton Mill Great Bottom

the text in this section is based on an article in Wikipedia

Stockton is a small village and civil parish in the Wylye Valley in Wiltshire, England, about 8 miles (13 km) southeast of Warminster. The parish includes the hamlet of Bapton.

The village is close to Codford, south of the A36 road, between the town of Warminster and the city of Salisbury.

When the civil parish of Fisherton Delamere was extinguished in 1934, the portion of the parish south of the Wylye (1,174 acres) was transferred to Stockton. This transfer included Bapton and Fisherton Mill, formerly part of the parish of Fisherton Delamere. Stockton also has two cottages some three miles from the main village street at a remote spot called Great Bottom.

The number of residents dwindled from 307 at the census of 1841 to 187 in the year 2001, then increased to 204 in the 2011 census.
