Fodor's Review

Bewdley is the southern terminus of this steam railroad running 16 miles north along the river to Bridgnorth, a lovely market town on a ridge above the Severn. The train stops at a handful of sleepy stations where time has apparently stood still since the age of steam. You can get off at any of these stations, picnic by the river, and walk to the next station to get a train back. Perching on a high sandstone ridge on the banks of the Severn, Bridgnorth has two distinct

parts, High Town and Low Town, connected by a winding road, flights of steep steps, and—best of all—a cliff railroad. Even the tower of the Norman castle seems to suffer from vertigo, leaning at a 15-degree angle, nearly four times that of the Tower of Pisa.
