Stourport-on-Severn
Stourport-on-Severn is a small town in the Wyre Forest district in North Worcester, just a few miles from both Kidderminster and Bewdley. Stourport grew up around the canal basins and locks between the canal and the River Severn and was a principal location for the trans-shipment of goods from canal boats into river going vessels. Stourport has now developed into a popular tourist town and in 2006 was granted Fairtrade Town status.
