Sturbridge USA visited Stourbridge UK

For a week in May 2012, members of the Sturbridge club visited the Stourbridge club in England. That coincided with Queen Elizabeth II 60th Anniversary of ascension to the throne. There were nation-wide celebrations, including a spectacular flotilla that paraded down the River Thames in London.

Stourbridge is located 18 miles southwest of the city of Birmingham, and has a long history, being active during the Industrial Revolution, with exquisite cut glass tableware, engineering (look up the Stourbridge Lion), and a great location for visiting many magnificent historical points of interest.

Similar to our Old Sturbridge Village, you can visit the Black Country Museum; an outdoor museum showing how people lived and worked in the Victorian era.
