The Stourbridge Canals

Canal boat holidays on the Stourport Canals

Cruise the Stourbridge Canals on a canal boat holiday in England to explore the industrial heritage of the Black Country and surrounding countryside

The Stourbridge Canals refer to two historic canals in the West Midlands region of England: the Stourbridge Canal and the Dudley Canal.  They offer canal boaters the chance to experience the industrial heritage of the Black Country, while enjoying the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside.

The Stourbridge Canal runs for approximately 8 miles (13km) from the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal at Stourton Junction to the town of Stourbridge.

Constructed in the late 18th century, the canal was primarily used to transport coal, limestone, and other goods to and from the industrial areas of the Black Country.

The Dudley Canal forms part of the wider Birmingham Canal Navigations system and includes the Dudley Canal Line No. 1 and the Dudley Canal Line No. 2.

Dudley Canal Line No. 1 runs from the Birmingham Canal at Dudley Port Junction to the town of Dudley, while Dudley Canal Line No. 2 connects to the Stourbridge Canal at Delph Locks.

Originally built to transport coal and limestone to the region’s industrial centres, the Dudley Canals now attract visitors interested in exploring their historic features.
