Stourport walkabout.

The main street was bustling with shoppers, with a continuous stream of traffic passing through as well. We ambled through it all down to the iron bridge spanning the Severn then along the more tranquil riverside path running up towards Bewdley. The path is well maintained with plenty of seats and littler bins en-route. Just past Lickhill Manor Caravan park we turned back. Families were going for river trips in the small motor boats that were for hire. We were surprised that non of them seemed to carry any safety equipment, not even a life ring!

There was a large car park one side of the huge unused river dock and on the opposite side was Treasure Island Amusement Park. Lots of squealing and laughter attracted us in for a look around. There were pirates, big model zoo animals, dinosaurs, dragons and fish with sharp teeth. which people were posing with to take photos. Apart from the Big Wheel, Helter Skelter, Dodgems, Gallopers, there were also two more scary rides. Also the usual ‘one arm bandits’ and slot machines of course. A few smaller rides and slides were around the corner for the tiny tots to ride on. So this was the popular Danters Fairground which is open all year round.
