Stourport Clock Basin, Worcestershire
Stourport Clock Basin, Worcestershire
The complicated dual level Stourport Basins were constructed where the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal joined the River Severn. Considerable redevelopment has taken place in the last decade. Some of the original late 18th century buildings are now listed, and have been preserved and/or adapted for new purposes. Stourport Clock Basin is above the pair of staircase locks which are used by narrowboats. The clock is off to the right. Turn right ahead, into Stourport Upper Basin, then left into the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, then off you go towards Wolverhampton and Great Haywood, then the potteries or the River Trent ... and so on.

Waterfront View is the housing block shown - built c2003. The white building is York House, currently a medical centre.
