Stourport Upper Pontoons L1

Stourport-on-Severn is a long way from the sea, but has the atmosphere of a true maritime holiday resort. Not surprisingly people from all over the region have been coming here for many years for a fun day out.

At the peak, Stourport was one of the busiest inland ports and to service increased traffic, a complex series of interconnecting basins evolved at the junction of the two waterways - the River Severn and the Staffordhsire & Worcestershire Canal. Today, these present a fascinating historic heritage landscape.

The Canal & River Trust provides over 50 moorings across the upper and lower basins and a range of facilities are available (please see individual mooring descriptions for more details).
