Stourport Lewis Worcestershire Directory 1820

Stourport, a market Town, situated upon the east bank of the Severn. A few years since this town was almost a barren sandy heath, till the junction of the Staffordshire Canal with the Severn was formed at this place, which from an insignificant village, is now become a neat and handsome town. New buildings are continually springing up, and its wharfs, extensive bosons, and busy traffic, present a lively picture of a little seaport.

By means of the Canal from this place there is an easy communication with most parts of the north, Manchester, Liverpool, &c. The manufacturers of Birmingham and the adjacent towns derive great advantage from having their heaviest products conveyed by water to the principal seaports in the kingdom, without any material addition to their original price. The first bason was opened in 1771, after an expence of £105,000.

A considerable trade is carried inhere in coals, corn, hops, and fruit. The houses in general are well built and the population upwards of 2,000. Market on Wednesday for all kinds of provisions. Fairs, March 27, September 14, and December 18.
