The port was the headquarters of the Thames & Severn Canal Company, and the site incorporated a 700 ft (213m) long canal basin which has long since been infilled. Most of the former port, which was redeveloped in the 1960s into a light industrial area, has since been acquired by Stroud District Council.
Rush Skate Park
The delay in the redevelopment of the Port presented new opportunities for local businesses. One of these is Rush Skate Park which occupies the former factory building below. This is a fantastic 40,000 sq ft indoor facility for those with scooters, skateboards, roller blades and BMX bikes.
Port Mill, the salt warehouse and a length of the Port's boundary wall alongside the River Frome are all Grade II listed.
