Stourport Canal Basin Guided Heritage Walk

Join us in stepping back in time on this lovely guided walk around the historic Stourport Canal Basin. You will explore some of the historic sites along this walk and whilst listening to the guides descriptions of the these fascinating buildings surrounding the canal basin and their lively history. 

The walk takes approximately and hour - hour and a half depending on questions and interest from the group.  Your guide will welcome interactive discussions and questions. We will start off at The Tontine Stables and loop around the lower and upper basins relaying all of the relevant historical information as we go. There are plenty of places to sit and rest and we take it a leisurely pace! We then walk up to the Ticket Office on York Street where people get a chance to see our mini museum and historical artefacts.

Please meet Colette at 10:15am promptly in the Stourport Funfair Carpark, Bridge Street, Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 8UY (please note that there is a charge for parking which you will need to pay for) and we will walk down to meet the guide together at Tontine Stables next to Windlass Cafe. 

Following the walk you could maybe get together with some fellow Carers from your group to go for coffee in town if you wish.
