Overview
More
For an inland town, miles away from the sea, Stourport on Severn has a surprising and delightful maritime atmosphere. 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.

Perhaps I was fortunate in that there were four longboats using the locks. Very interesting to watch - looked quite hard work for those operating the locks, especially as it was a very hot day.

We parked by the funfair and walked around to the basin. We timed it perfectly as a narrow boat was coming through the lock. Volunteers were manning the lock and it was fascinating to watch the water filling up and the boat sailing through to...More

I imagine that many visitors to Stourport don't wander down here which is a pity. Close to the High Street with parking nearby there are walks along the canals with locks to investigate. Plenty to see in the basin with barges navigating locks or just...More

Visited again. Nice to walk around the basins and along the river. Can watch the boats and wildlife. Places to stop for a drink overlooking the river and seats just to sit and watch the world go by.
