Bridgnorth Town

Bridgnorth is a bustling historic market-town situated on the River Severn in Shropshire. It is effectively two towns, High Town and Low Town, separated and joined by a number of sets of steps, the steep 'Cartway' and the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway. Bridgnorth's numerous historic buildings include the castle (leaning at an extreme angle since it was destroyed in the civil war), the timber framed town hall elevated above the high street on brick piers and the medieval Northgate bridging the high street.

The River Severn The River Severn is the longest river in Britain, rising in the Cambrian Mountains and flowing into Shropshire, then south to Bristol, and out into the Bristol Channel. Through Bridgnorth the river flows between High Town and Low Town, and the Stoneway Guest House provides impressive views of the river and the quayside. The river is extremely popular with fishermen and good fishing can be had along much of the river around Bridgnorth. A little way down stream, the Hampton Loade ferry has been transporting people across the river for over 400 years.
