Stourport-on-Severn Town Information

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

Sometimes referred to as the Venice of the Midlands, Stourport is unique in that it was built to fit the needs of the so-called canal age in the 18th century. It has successfully retained a strong waterside flavour and once-vibrant basins, locks and warehouses now provide a tranquil backdrop for a host of elegant Georgian buildings. Here the rivers Severn and Stour join up and form a connection with the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal which is itself linked to the Trent and Mersey Canal.
