Mushroom Internet design and host websites from Stonehouse and surrounding areas. Gloucestershire is such a beautiful part of the UK, we thought it only fair we provide a little bit of history about the area.
Stonehouse, Gloucestershire is an urban area within the Stroud District, in the UK. It is home to a number of factories, such asDairy Crest, Schlumberger 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 three miles west of Stroud and twelve miles south of Gloucester.
Stonehouse was mentioned in Willam the Conquerors 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 : stn > stone + hs > house, as an effect of the great vowel shift at the end of the Middle Ages.
