There is a pub on the station at Bridgnorth where you can

have a meal and a pint while you watch the trains

and see the engine sheds and shunting

     

    

Victoria Bridge

  

Bridgnorth is two towns, High Town (good views down) and Low Town (good views up) both connected by the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain

Low Town was once a thriving port along the banks of the River Severn while High Town held the castle, the churches, and many fine 16th and 17th century mansions

 Bridgnorth

 

The more energetic can amble up one of the seven sets of steps, or the steep old Cartway,

where goods were once hauled to the market above

 

The carts are gone, but the markets remain. Antiques and local produce are particular specialities

By the time you reach the top, you'll probably need a sit down and where better than the Castle Gardens? What's left of the Castle leans at an alarming angle, even greater than the Tower of Pisa

The building was blown up in the Civil War by the parliamentarians, who botched it, as

parliamentarians are wont to do. There is an iron footbridge which takes you

to the Severn Valley Railway station where you will catch your train

booking price. Later you can stroll around the

famous Barbican, once home to pirates,

now the home of Plymouth Gin

and lots of teashops

 

When Ben Squire started fishing with one boat he could hardly
have imagined how his business would grow to a fleet which
includes six pleasure boats and a harbourside café

cooking fish straight off of his boats

 

The Lemon Sole so beautiful on your plate was probably

swimming off shore just hours ago

Plymouth's Devonport dockyard still serves some

of The Royal Navy's fleet of ships
