How far is from Hinksford Wharf
The Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal runs through softly undulating West Midlands countryside.

Stourport-on-Severn - A beautiful Georgian town located on the River Severn and built solely as the consequence of the canals, The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal linked the River Severn with the Trent and Mersey and as a result Stourport became one of the busiest inland port in the Midlands. The town is a popular tourist town with many attractions and events for the whole family

Gas Street Basin - the hub of Birmingham's canal system and well worth a visit for its range of waterside pubs and to see the pretty canal boats moored there.

The Severn Valley railway is a full-size standard-gauge railway line running regular steam-hauled passenger trains for the benefit of visitors and enthusiasts alike between Kidderminster in Worcestershire and bridgnorth in Shropshire, a distance of 16 miles. Why not disembark at Bewdley & take a trip to the safari park with it's free roaming giraffes, elephants & big cats.?The train journey is full of interest, for the route follows closely the meandering course of the River Severn for most of the way on its journey between Kidderminster and bridgnorth. One highlight of the trip is the crossing of the River Severn by means of the Victoria bridge - a massive 200-foot single span, high above the water which, incidentally, features in the film 'The Thirty-nine Steps' with Robert Powell in the leading role.

Black Country Museum - see the historic building brought to life and meet the characters who lived and worked in bygone times. There will be a warm welcome awaiting you at the Bottle and Glass where you can try a traditional pint of Black Country Real Ale.
