Bridgnorth in Shropshire is situated on the Severn Valley.
It is split into High Town and Low Town, because of their elevations relative to the River Severn,
which separates the upper town on the right bank from the lower on the left.
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 the country.
Additionally, within the High Town is Bridgnorth railway station on the Severn Valley Railway,
which runs southwards to Kidderminster. The ruins of Bridgnorth Castle, built in 1101, are present in the town.
