This gallery of pictures features the historic market town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire. Bridgnorth is split into High Town and Low Town, which are linked by seven sets of steps as well as the Cliff Railway, the steepest inland funicular railway in Britain.
Low Town was once a thriving port along the banks of the River Severn, while High Town is dominated by the castle ruins, the Town Hall, and the churches of St Mary and St Leonard.
The castle tower leans at an angle of 15 degrees, three times greater than that of the leaning tower of Pisa. This is the result of an attempt to blow it up during the Civil War.
The northern end of the Severn Valley Railway terminates at Bridgnorth Station, which is also home to the heritage line's locomotive works.
