The Worcestershire Middle Severn catchment is predominantly rural, but contains significant urban areas including parts of Telford, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Kidderminster and Worcester. As well as the River Severn itself, the main watercourses are the rivers Worfe, Stour and Salwarpe. The catchment is incredibly diverse in character. To the west is mostly rural in nature including the Wyre Forest and the eastern boundary of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the east is the industrial heartland of the Black Country and at either end are the urban areas of Telford and Worcester.
