Everything you need to know about Stourbridge

About the area

Stourbridge sits alongside stunning greenbelt countryside with protected beauty spots like Kinver Edge, and the Clent and Walton hills just minutes from the town.

The town’s fortunes were based on glass manufacture dating back to the 1600’s, with Stourbridge glass recognised as some of the finest in the world and often given as gifts to royalty. Sadly few producers still remain (although you can visit Tudor Crystal to see lead crystal still being made today).

Whether you are looking to move to the area or already live here we are able to help.
