Location and extent
When the civil parish of Fisherton Delamere was extinguished in 1934, the portion south of the Wylye (1,174 acres) was transferred to Stockton. This transfer included Bapton and Fisherton Mill, in the village of Fisherton Delamere. Stockton also has two cottages some three miles from the main village street at a remote spot called Great Bottom.
St John the Baptist's Church, Stockton, is largely unrestored and in the south aisle has an early 14th-century stone effigy of a lady, believed to be the foundress of the chantry for which this aisle was built. In the north aisle is a canopied tomb of John and Mary Topp. Parts of the building date from the late 12th-century. It is a Grade I listed building. 
Like several other villages, Stockton is within the catchment area of the Wylye Valley Church of England Primary School, on a site some two miles away at Cherry Orchard, Codford. The nearest secondary schools are at Warminster and Salisbury and include Warminster School.
Most local government services are provided by Wiltshire Council, which has its offices in Trowbridge, some fifteen miles to the north. Stockton also has its own elected parish council of five members.
Stockton House, a country house in Chilmark stone at the north end of the village, was built by John Topp, a local clothier, in the 1580s. Most of its Jacobean features have survived and it is Grade I listed.
Longhall, another country house at the south end of the village, dates from the 15th century and is Grade II* listed; it is the seat of the Yeatman-Biggs family.
The village also has several thatched cottages, some with 15th- and 16th-century origins.
