Stewkley is a parish of 3982 acres. The village has grown along the watershed between the Ouse and the Thames, about 500 ft asl. The spelling of the village name has varied over the years but it is thought to be rooted in the Anglo Saxon styfic-leah meaning clearing with stumps. Aerial photography has shown crop mark indication of a prehistoric enclosure and ring ditch and there have been some finds of flints and spindle whorls. A Roman road from Dorchester on Thames to Alconbury traversed the parish from SW to NE and it has been suggested that another from St Albans to Leckhampstead ran SE to NW. Sherds of Roman pottery and glass have been found.
