Kidderminster Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Worcestershire...

Although this town lies at the southern terminus of the steam-powered Severn Valley Railway, which runs 16 miles north to Bridgnorth, its real claim to fame is carpet making, a one-time cottage industry that was transformed by the invention of the power loom. Many old mills have survived and stand as a testament to a remarkable local heritage. The town’s most famous son was Rowland Hill, inventor of the penny post.
