"Canal Walk" Stourport Things to Do Tip by Galahad
Stourport Things to Do: 11 reviews and 30 photos
All along the canal through the town are small items and details of interest which cannot be seen from the road on a drive through.
I have put up some photographs that I have taken along a short 600 yard/metre stretch of the Staffs & Worcs Canal.
In the 19th century Stourport was a major producer of iron and steel and the first photograph is of the canal warehouse from Baldwin's foundary which now is the only reminder of this industrial past.
In another photo is the Toll Office that collected a fee from each bargeman as he passed through into the basin where his goods would be unloaded into boats capable of going out to sea and either up to Bristol or round the coast to South Wales.
Every bridge on the canal has a name plate and the next two photos are of one the bridges and its plate. It bears the old name (Lower Mitton) for this part of Stourport.
