Bridgnorth & District u3a ...
No longer working full-time or raising a family? Now’s the time to make the most of life.
u3a offers the chance to develop your interests, make new friends and enjoy yourself.
We are a unique and exciting organisation which provides opportunities for those living in
and around Bridgnorth and who have finished raising a family and/or are no longer in full time
work and who wish to continue to learn, laugh and live in what is often referred to as the
'third-age' of life.
We are a member led organisation. Members share their skills and life experiences with
each other in small groups, through a wide variety of interests and activities. We aim to have
fun along the way and some say that u3a is the 'youth club' for older people!

Bridgnorth Town ...
An historic market town with an area population of 12,500 lying in the County of Shropshire.
Once the town was the busiest inland port in Europe (pre canals and railways).
Nowadays the River Severn is clear and unpolluted, and is a quiet haven for walkers, anglers
and wildlife. Bridgnorth nestles comfortably into the Severn Valley and is uniquely divided into
High Town (with great views down!) and Low Town (with great views up!).
High and Low Town are connected by the original roadway known as The Cartway, seven ancient
Donkey Steps and the Cliff Railway which is the steepest inland funicular in Britain.
The award winning Severn Valley Steam Railway links the town to Kidderminster14 miles to the south.
Other surrounding towns are: Shrewsbury 21 miles; Telford 12 miles; Wolverhampton 14 miles;
Birmingham 27 miles.
