The Stourport Ring

Canal boating at Brindleyplace in Birmingham

Boaters traversing the Stourport Ring are treated to a diverse range of landscapes, including picturesque countryside, wooded areas and urban landscapes. The route passes through charming villages, historic towns and industrial heritage sites, offering plenty of opportunities for scenic vistas and exploration.

The route travels 104 miles through 121 locks.  It takes in sections of the Staffordshire & Worcestershire, Worcester & Birmingham, Birmingham Main Line and Stourbridge canals, as well as a short section of the River Severn, Britain’s longest river.

Highlights include: Gas Street Basin and Brindleyplace in central Birmingham; Kinver with its National Trust rock houses; the City of Worcester with its magnificent cathedral; beautiful views of the open countryside along the River Severn; the Stourport Basins; the dramatic flight of 30 locks at Tardebigge, the longest in the country; and the 21 locks at Wolverhampton.
