The town gives its name to local glass production, which has been manufactured since the early 1600s.
The local glass proved particularly suitable for the industry, taken up predominantly after the immigration of French coal miners in the Huguenot diaspora.
However, most of the glass industry was actually located in surrounding areas including Wordsley, Amblecote and Oldswinford.
Historically part of Worcestershire and situated on the River Stour, Stourbridge developed during the industrial revolution into a centre of glass making.
It is the site of the Red House Glass Museum and there are regular demonstrations of blowing glass in the traditional way, and a collection of Stourbridge glass can be seen at Broadfield House Glass Museum in Kingswinford.
