Severn Valley Railway
Bridgnorth and the Severn Valley Railway
The award winning family run Hundred House Hotel in Norton, is 10 minutes drive from the historic market town of Bridgnorth. Bridgnorth is a town where you get two for the price of one. There is the old Bridgnorth High Town which lies perched on a hill-top above the River Severn and has superb views of the river valley. King Charles 1st described them as"The finest view in all my Kingdom." From High Town a bridge leads to the popular Severn Valley Railway.
The Severn Valley Railway is a full-size standard-gauge railway line running regular steam-hauled passenger trains for the benefit of visitors and enthusiasts alike between Kidderminster in Worcestershire and Bridgnorth in Shropshire, a distance of 16 miles. The journey is full of interest, for the route follows closely the meandering course of the River Severn for most of the way on its journey between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth. One highlight of the trip is the crossing of the River Severn by means of the Victoria Bridge - a massive 200-foot single span, high above the water which, incidentally, features in the film 'The Thirty-nine Steps' with Robert Powell in the leading role.
Twisting medieval streets lead down to the river or take the country's oldest and steepest inland cliff railway to Low Town where you can stroll along the River Severn.
