Henstridge lies in the extreme south of Somerset and it's parish is separated from Dorset by Landshire Lane. Its name comes from the Olde English word 'henst', meaning 'horses' and translates as: "the ridge where stallions are kept".  The ridge is the narrow strip of Jurassic limestone that runs through Henstridge and the nearby villages of Yenston and Whitechurch. Henstridge has an attractive church, which was consecrated in 1332. Unusually it has four altars. The porch was added in the 14th Century and the north aisle was built in the 15th Century. Nearby, you can explore a number of properties in the care of the National Trust, such as Stourhead House and Gardens and the historic town of Shaftesbury. Britain's most famous stone circle, Stone Henge, is only a short drive away and the Dorset coast offers the best of coastline and countryside.
