The Chain Wire Club Ground in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire was used for first-class cricket by Worcestershire County Cricket Club on a single occasion: a County Championship match against Lancashire in 1980, which Worcestershire won by an innings and 153 runs. David Humphries made 108 not out for the home side, while Norman Gifford produced an outstanding first-innings return of 18-13-15-6, then took four more wickets in the second innings.

The ground was also used for three of the county's Second XI games between 1979 and 1980.

The Chain Wire Club Ground is also the location where the Chain Wire Band first ever played, thus naming the band after the club. The Chainwire Band are a young band from Kidderminster and Wales who play cover versions ranging from Classic Rock to Pop. The Band formed in November 2006 in a high school in mid-wales . The band then grew its popularity and now play every weekend at clubs located across the country.
