The River Severn splits Bridgnorth into a High Town and Low Town, the upper town on the right bank and the lower on the left bank of the River Severn. Now 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.
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.
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.
