Stourbridge - A Town in Full Boom
Stourbridge, famous for its Glass Making and Industrial heritage, is now experiencing a revival as a desirable commuter town. With its excellent links to the motorway network and mainline railway station, Stourbridge brings the cities of Birmingham, Worcester and even London within easy reach.
The excellent Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Colleges of Further Education in the area, also make Stourbridge a great choice for young families. The beautiful parks and proximity to the countryside add to its appeal.
In its renaissance Stourbridge is also seeing a boom in its leisure opportunities. The choice of nightlife venues has never been better or more varied. There are gyms and leisure centres all over town and sport plays a big part in local life. Stourbridge Town FC competes in Premier Division Central and in recent years has hosted rounds of the FA Cup. Stourbridge RFC and Stourbridge Lions RFC play in National 2 North (Level 4) and Midlands 1 West (Level 6) respectively from their ground just beyond the town at Stourton Park.
As the need for more housing continues to grow, Stourbridge has responded well, with developers converting some of its most iconic buildings into stunning apartment complexes. Two of these developments are to be found at the former homes of the local newspaper and the old Police Station.
The Stourbridge News and County Express offices were housed at St. John’s House at the head of the Ring Road for many years. Witley Homes had the vision to develop these offices into impressive apartments. The launch day for the show apartment will take place on Saturday 14th March from 9:00am to 12:30pm.

With the local Police Force moving its operation to nearby Brierley Hill, the old Station and Court House was taken over by Lovell Homes to become 31, 1 and 2 bed apartments. Keeping all of the original features of this iconic building on the Ring Road, the launch weekend will take place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th March from 10:00am to 5:00pm on each day.
