High Town is dominated by two Church of England churches. St. Mary's Church, a church built in the classic style of the late 18th century, was designed by Thomas Telford. The first two pictures are taken from the churchyard.
Bridgnorth is home to a funicular railway that links the high and low towns, the Castle Hill Railway, which is the steepest and only inland railway of its type in England. Regrettably we did not try it out. The ruins of Bridgnorth Castle, built in 1101, are present in the town. Due to damage caused during the English Civil War, the castle is inclined at an angle of 15 degrees. We walked down Castle Street and found a house that had been lived in by Thomas Telford. We took a break and had lunch at Castle tearooms where my uncle was given the biggest cheese and tomato sandwich both of us had seen. Gallantly, he did it justice!
