Bridgnorth is named after a bridge over the River Severn that was built further north, and the town has a wealth of history to its name.

As early as 895 it is recorded that the Danes created a camp nearby, although the town itself was formed in 1101 with the construction of a castle and church for the purpose of defending against an attack from Wales. The ruins of the castle still stand today, although due to damage caused during the Civil War, the castle is inclined at an angle of 15 degrees.

Today, Bridgnorth is a thriving market town with an excellent selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants.

There are many shops and supermarkets which cater for most day to day needs, and the town has excellent schooling from nursery through to secondary, along with very good leisure and swimming facilities.

Bridgnorth is home to Castle Hill Railway, and the Severn Valley Railway.

There are transport links to Telford, Kidderminster and the motorway and rail networks beyond.
