About Stratford sub Castle 

Situated on the northern fringes of Salisbury, Wiltshire and just south of the Woodford Valley, Stratford sub Castle was once a thriving medieval village but is now a semi-rural residential area and since 1954, part of Salisbury.  It lies 8 miles south of Stonehenge. 


Stratford's boundary to the west is the River Avon, and to the east Old Sarum, a one-time iron age hill fort. On this high ground a Norman castle was built, with the original Sarum (Salisbury) cathedral within the outer bailey.
