The River Leven flows through the town on its way to the Tees at Yarm. Many small bridges cross tyhe water including a 17th century stone packhorse bridge.

The great wide market square (the "plain") still hosts Stokesley market on Fridays. The town has many independent shops as well as a small supermarket.
