Located in the south-east of Shropshire, Bridgnorth is divided into High Town and Low Town on opposite banks of the River Severn. Among its landmarks are its seventeenth-century, half-timbered town hall and the precariously leaning ruins of its castle, the result of an attempt to blow it up in the Civil War. Bridgnorth also has its funicular railway linking Low Town and High Town, which is the oldest and steepest inland railway of its kind in England.


In Bridgnorth History Tour local author Clive Gwilt takes the reader on a fascinating journey to see how the town has altered during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With the help of a handy location map, this pocket-sized guide explores the streets, buildings and landmarks, and discovers the well-known and hidden aspects of Bridgnorth’s heritage together with its architectural gems. The tour, showing the changing face of the town, will be of interest to visitors and residents alike.
