Stourbridge is the home of AP Morgan’s third and latest high street branch, AP Morgan Stourbridge, located in the heart of Stourbridge town centre. Our Stourbridge branch is managed by Alex Ferguson who has been part of the AP Morgan team for several years. In addition, Alex is also a local lad, born and raised in Hagley and playing for Stourbridge Rugby Club in his younger days! Alex and his team have a great amount of local knowledge and are always ready and eager to help local people sell their homes and of course help people join the local community.
Stourbridge has a rich history dating back hundreds of years. Because of this, the area has a great variety of properties available. From beautiful period properties dating back to when people first started living in the area in the early 1600’s, all the way through to the great variety of new build homes that have been built throughout the area to support the new jobs being created in the area.
In terms of employment, like the rest of the Black Country, Stourbridge has a very strong manufacturing heritage dating back hundreds of years back to the start of glassmaking in the area. In addition to the various manufacturing jobs in the area, Stourbridge is of course also home to a variety of other types of jobs, including its own budding tech scene. Those with jobs further afield or are willing to travel for their new job are in luck – Stourbridge has excellent transport links that are only set to get better.
Stourbridge Junction is Stourbridge’s main train station, and sits on the well served, efficient and frequent Kidderminster – Birmingham line, with many trains also heading to Worcester and even further afield. Stourbridge is also home to the shortest connecting branch line in Europe, which runs half a mile from Stourbridge Junction to the town centre – a further testament to the town’s excellent transport links. There is also a well-connected network of bus routes in the area, running both throughout Stourbridge but also to neighbouring areas. Stourbridge is also a planned stop on the upcoming Midland Metro tram service. The South Staffordshire line will run from Walsall, Wednesbury, Dudley, and Stourbridge, connecting the town even further to the surrounding areas of the Black Country.
Those looking to move their family to Stourbridge will be pleased to know that there’s a selection of very well performing schools and colleges in the area, including a King Edward VI college, the Old Swinford Hospital, and several other well performing schools.
