The historic riverside town of Bridgnorth (district population 12,500) nestles comfortably into the Severn Valley less than 30 miles from Birmingham and some 20 miles from Shrewsbury.
Bridgnorth was once (pre canals and railways) the busiest inland river port in Europe, but nowadays, the River Severn, clear and unpolluted, is a quiet haven for walkers, anglers and wildlife.
This market town is divided into High Town and Low Town, the two being linked by seven sets of ancient donkey steps and the steepest inland cliff railway in Britain, the Castle Hill Railway. In Low Town, the award winning Severn Valley Steam Railway links the town to Kidderminster.
Discover what Bridgnorth & District U3A has to offer ...
U3A stands for "University of the Third Age".
However, we are not a formal university and no qualifications are necessary for membership. The word 'university' is used in the wider context of groups of people coming together with common interests ... not necessarily intellectual. Members share their skills and life experiences ... the learners teach and the teachers learn and there is no distinction between them.
Retired and semi-retired people learn together ... not for qualifications but for its own reward of the joy of discovery! Your local U3A can provide an opportunity to continue to LEARN, LAUGH and LIVE!
