WELCOME TO RIVERSIDE HOUSE
Welcome to a blog about the Riverside House site in Stourbridge, a personal account of an ongoing fascination with this beautiful and enigmatic place and an attempt to capture its heritage, its wildlife and its potential to be conserved and preserved, cherished and nurtured, by the local community.
Much has been researched and written about Stourbridge, its glass and iron industries. The intention here is not to recapitulate the fantastic work that has already occurred. Rather, it is an attempt to capture the spirit of the Riverside site through my personal encounter with the place itself and people I have met who have also had a connection and can contribute to its story and ongoing narrative.
One of the purposes of this blog is to capture the folk memories and recollections of the Riverside House site, so please feel free to contribute where and whenever possible.
