Famed as the birthplace of the first ever locomotive to operate in America, the recent regeneration project on the Old Foundry in Stourbridge into the ultra-modern new Stourbridge Lion Medical Centre, has earned much media attention! Renovation work commenced in 2012 after it was decided that the Worcester Street Medical Practice could rebuild the Old Foundry and turn it into a state of the art medical centre, complete with a fabulous landscaped area created with Tobermore paving.

Manufactured by Foster, Rastrick & Co. in the Old Foundry, Stourbridge, in 1828, the famous Stourbridge Lion was one of the first railroad steam locomotives to operate outside Britain. The Stourbridge Lion's historic first run took place on August 8th of 1828, and after all these years, the locomotive is now on view at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, on loan from The Smithsoniam Institute, Washington DC.

Using the Old Foundry for the purpose of a new medical centre was the ideal solution for the beautifully aged building, given that the centre will not only provide medical help for local people, but will keep the historical site in use and within the heart of the community. Officially entitled with the name 'Stourbridge Lion Medical Centre,' the highly impressive centre pays a special homage to the locomotive.

The beautiful grounds at Stourbridge Lion Medical Centre was designed by Abacus Architects and BEA Landscape Design, Wolverhampton, and consist of a collaboration of Tobermore products. The brilliant Amphion Developments, Tipton, also acted as main contractor on the widely anticipated regeneration project. A key style feature of the landscape is Tobermore's sophisticated Fusion block paving. Emulating traditional natural granite, Fusion's stunning exposed aggregates create a striking visual effect. This is combined with aged, antique Tegula block paving. Displaying a timeless elegance, Tegula can match the traditional splendour of a period design or add character to a modern environment. The aesthetic qualities of these products represent the amalgamation of the entities of the Old Foundry and the modern new medical centre fantastically.
