Stourport-on-Severn – A Georgian canal town in the heart of the Severn Valley
Stourport-on-Severn (often shortened to Stourport), is a town and civil parish in the Wyre Forest District of North Worcestershire, England
Stourport is a long way from the sea, but has the atmosphere of a true maritime holiday resort. Not surprisingly people from all over the region have been coming here for many years for a fun day out. It was once a busy inland port, which grew up around the point where the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal joins the River Severn.
Today the restored canal basins are a great place to discover the history of the Stourport and the River Severn.
With a rich history, dating back to 1768, Stourport-on-Severn is almost unique as a town that was only built as a result of the coming of the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal.
