Stourport Basins

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.
