“Our Stour”  A photographic journey along the River Stour from  source to Severn An illustrated talk at Severn Valley Country Park

Thursday 8th March at 7.30pm Black Country Society photographer, Graham Beckley, presents a photographic journey from the source of the River Stour, high in the Clent Hills through the Black Country and into the countryside of Staffordshire and Worcestershire to where it joins the River Severn at Stourport.

This is the story of a river that shaped the history and industry of the Black Country in South Staffordshire and North Worcestershire. Relics of the river’s industrial past will be highlighted such as mill, forges and ironworks.

Subject to availability, Graham’s book, ‘Our Stour’, will be available to purchase after the talk.

The talk will be held in the visitor centre at Severn Valley Country Park on Thursday 8th March 2018, 7.30pm.
