The historic market town of Bridgnorth (area population 12,500) nestles comfortably into the
River Severn Valley, less than 10 miles from Birmingham and 20 miles from Shrewsbury.
The award winning Severn Valley Steam Railway links the town to Kidderminster.
It is uniquely divided into High Town (with great views down!) and Low Town (with great view up!)
which are connected by The Cartway, seven sets of ancient Donkey Steps and the Castle Hill Railway
which is the steepest inland cliff railway in Britain.
Bridgnorth was once (pre canals and railways) the busiest inland port in Europe, but nowadays the
River Severn is clear and unpolluted, and is a quiet haven for walkers, anglers and wildlife.
Bridgnorth & District U3A ...
U3A is a unique and exciting organisation which provides opportunities for people who are retired,
semi-retired or nearing retirement, residing in and around Bridgnorth, to come together to continue
to Learn, Laugh and Live in what is known as our 'Third-Age'.
Members share their skills and life experiences with each other, in small groups, in an organisation
where the learners 'teach' and the teachers 'learn' ... with no distinction between them and
where no qualifications are given.
