Some history of Stourbridge
More information on Stourbridge to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Stourbridge from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Stourbridge. There is information on Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
