Currently known as St Juthware and St Mary.

Halstock is a village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southern England, situated in the West Dorset administrative district approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Yeovil in Somerset. It lies on the route of the ancient Harrow Way. In the 2011 census the parish had a population of 546.

Halstock formerly constituted a liberty, containing only the parish itself. It was the site of the martyrdom of Saint Juthwara, and a Romano-British Villa, excavated between 1967-1985.

In July 2012, Halstock's Parish church of St Mary was rededicated by the Bishop of Sherborne to become "St Juthware and St Mary", in recognition of the local tradition. Much of the church was rebuilt in 1770, with only the 15th-century west tower not being affected. The nave and chancel were rebuilt again on separate dates in the 19th century.
