Just off the Tenbury Wells to Bromyard road and 14 miles north west of Worcester is to be found Stoke Bliss, a small, wide spread village in the heart of farming country. The village contains several 17th century half-timbered cottages and farm houses. The church stands on a spur, looking down on a bridge where two small streams flow westwards to the Kyre Brook. The loamy soil is ideal for crops and grazing, crops such as wheat, beans, peas,hops and apples were grown and there is a tradition of cider making in the area. The name 'Stoke' is derived from the Saxon 'Stoc' meaning Summer Pasture, the 'Bliss' is probably after William de Bliss who was Lord of the Manor in the early 13th century. The Bliss family had a colourful life; William was fined 2 marks in 1176 for trespass in the forests of Hereford; they were dispossessed of their lands in 1231, but they were restored in around 1234 and in 1253 Hugh, Williams son, was pardoned for the death of William Corbin. St.Peters church dates from the 13th century, although much restored and re-built notably in 1854; it consists of a nave, chapel and south-west tower with a broach style spire, there is a Norman Font and the pulpit dates from 1631. Nearby is Garmsley Camp an ancient hill-fort. Stoke Bliss was formerly in Herefordshire until 1897 when boundary changes saw it 'transferred' into Worcestershire.
