Things to do in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire
Stoke Poges is famous for its association with Thomas Gray. The poet lies in the simple tomb of his mother and sister in the churchyard of the Church of St Giles. Although his name does not appear on the tomb, his death is recorded on a tablet on the church wall opposite. Though twice enlarged since Gray’s lifetime the churchyard still remains much as he must have known it.
John Penn, grandson of William Penn the founder of Pennsylvania, was Lord of the Manor of Stoke Poges from 1775 to 1834. Stoke Park House was used in the film Goldfinger.
