Series: From Old Photographs

Bridgnorth lies in the south-east corner of Shropshire, separated by a dozen miles of farmland from the Black Country, the same distance from the old carpet town of Kidderminster to the south-east, and only thirty miles from Birmingham. Situated along the Severn Valley, and named after a bridge over the River Severn, as a former busy river port, Bridgnorth has seen a wide variety of industries and events over the years. Bridgnorth life is well represented here and many poignant memories will be aroused. This collection of old photographs is put together by Clive Gwilt from his unique collection. Born in the town, although having travelled around the World a few times with his job as a Merchant Navy Officer, he was always thinking about his hometown.
