Stockbridge is a village of a little under 600 people cite web|url= |title=Parish Headcounts, Area: Stockbridge CP|accessdate=2008-02-27 |work=Neighbourhood Statistics |publisher=Office for National Statistics ] in Hampshire, England. It is on the River Test, in the Test Valley district and renowned for trout fishing. The A30 road goes through the town, which once carried most of the traffic from London to the South West. However, today most of the traffic uses the A303 road to the north of Stockbridge.

Stockbridge was once considered a town. It was given the right to hold a market by 1190, and elected two members to the unreformed House of Commons from the 1560s. The Reform Act 1832 abolished it as a rotten borough. Stockbridge had a railway station on the Andover & Redbridge Railway (known as the "Sprat and Winkle Line"), later part of the LSWR. This closed in 1967.

Hicks Withers-Lancashire was Lord of the Manor from the 1890's until 1902.
