Weekend Adventure

So it’s Winter, it’s the weekend & you want somewhere cute to go for the day?

Bridgnorth - the bridge in winter - south side

Well, look no further than the wonderful Bridgnorth!

A beautiful town in Shropshire, England, situated on the Severn Valley.

It is home to the Castle Hill Railway, which is the steepest and only inland railway of its type in the country.

It links the high town to the low town and was used to carry goods and produce up and down the 111ft sandstone cliff back in 1892 when it opened.

The town is a typical quaint, English town full of independent book stores, cafes & tea shops & we enjoyed a lovely Winters day strolling around hand in hand thinking we had stepped back in time!

We found a lovely tea shop called Tea & Roses in the town centre where we enjoyed a pot of tea and some coffee.

They sold fresh cakes, cookies & sandwiches & also had a lovely range of homemade cards & vintage crafts & accessories.

The roaring log fire was enough to entice us in & the homemade menus were just another wonderful added touch.

As you can see, the scenery & views are spectacular. We really are lucky to live in such a beautiful and picturesque country!
