|Stratton is a delightful town with
old world charm and it may
be thought of by some as a village due to it's size.
Stratton is very near to the very popular town
Bude. Stratton is in North Cornwall but only just into Cornwall as it
is so near to Devon. It is an interesting village. In 1643 a
battle took place during the Civil War.|
Stratton has a lot of history and goes back to a long time ago. In 880 AD it was referred to in the Anglo Saxon King Alfreds Will.
Strattons original similar name was Straetneat. Stratton Manor was mentioned in the Doomsday Book in the eleventh centurt AD.
The church in Stratton is a Norman Church from the 12 th Century AD and has reference to St Andrew.
Stratton used to be considered an important place years ago when populations were much lower than they are now and that is why there was the Stratton Hundred. In Medieval times Stratton had a leather industry. There used to be markets and fairs held in Stratton. There is beautiful countryside near the town.
