The Club Heritage

stanleybaldwin001

Stourport Workmen’s Club can be traced back to the late 1800’s as a men’s reading club, based in a Lombard Street house owned by the famous Baldwin industrial iron & steel family.

Alfred Baldwin and his son Stanley, later Prime Minister and 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley, were early Club Presidents and left a legacy that survives and prospers to the present day as Stourport’s social hub. Indeed, on entering the foyer you are greeted by a display of the scarlet uniform of Deputy Lieutenant of Worcestershire, Alfred Baldwin’s bequest to the Club.

Now a modern, vibrant, thriving organisation that welcomes members of both sexes, the Club has never forgotten its roots – as evinced by its association with Stourport Civic Society who freely store their records in the Club.
