The Path of the River Stour (Warwickshire)

The source of the River Stour (Warwickshire) is located near Traitors Ford in Warwickshire. The first large settlements on the banks of the river are the villages of Stourton and Sutton-under-Brailes.

The river heads west from Stourton passing the village of Cherington and continuing for about 2 miles to become the Gloucestershire - Warwickshire border, here the Warwickshire Stour heads north northwest for about half a mile, leaves the border behind at the parish of Tidmington, and heads north northeast into Warwickshire.

The next major settlement on the banks of the Warwickshire Stour is the town of Shipston-on-Stour, where the river flows up the eastern flank of the town.

Leaving Shipston-on-Stour behind, the River Stour continues to wind its way north, passing the villages of Honington, Tredington, Halford, Newbold-on-Stour and Alderminster.

From Alderminster the River Stour heads northwest to the village of Preston-on-Stour, then north to the village of Atherstone-on-Stour, then north northwest to Clifford Chambers.

After Clifford Chambers the River Stour heads west northwest for just over a mile before reaching its confluence with the River Avon.
