Unlocking Stourport's Past

A project managed by Stourport Civic Society

This is a two and a half year project managed by Stourport Civic Society and funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, Nationwide, The Countryside Agency and the Local Heritage Initiative. The Civic Society are acting in partnership with Worcestershire Historic Environment and Archaeology Service.

"Forgotten Stourport" has been made the theme of our Project which seeks to help update the historic record of the town by documenting and recording non-listed buildings and structures in the hope that this will give them some form of protection. To take one example Stourport has a large number of historic walls but most of these are not recorded and could therefore easily be lost.

At the end of the project we hope to have a computerised database which members of the public will be able to consult to find out more about their town. During the course of the Project we aim to produce information leaflets on Stourport Shops, Stouport Pubs and Stourport Walls.
