A bit about Bridgnorth
Bridgnorth is made up of the High Town and the Low Town... and is connected by the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain.
The Low Town was once a thriving port along the banks of the River Severn, while the High Town held the castle, the churches, and many fine 16th and 17th century mansions.
Amble up one of the seven sets of steps, or the steep old Cartway, and visit the market and other speciality shops.
Nearby an iron footbridge takes you to the Severn Valley Railway Station. If you want to explore the beautiful Severn Gorge to the south, you should definitely let the steam train take the strain.
