Bridgnorth, Woodbridge, Harper Adams University

The quaint village crossing the River Severn, Bridgenorth, the place Hitler once wished to occupy and use as his personal headquarters.

 

It is also the place of the steepest and shortest funicular railway making easy connection of the Low and High Town.

 

Views over the River Severn, red tiled roof tops and neighbouring forest are enjoyed no matter the weather. The ruins of a castle now leaning amongst the newly laid English Gardens and beautiful churches of various brick and stone colourings delight the senses. Bridgnorth offering much history, in a small town square in High Town, many tea houses and plentiful quality brocante fairs.

A special few images can be viewed here

Further along the River Severn is the beautiful Woodbridge and Woodbridge Inn. A must stop for a winter wood fire and dining.

Harper Adams University, a former Manor House, now an agricultural university.  Set in the quiet and peaceful Edgmond, nr Newport and much live stock to entertain.

    Great photos! Harper Adams was never actually a manor house. It was purpose-built following a bequest from Thomas Harper Adams and opened to six students in 1901. If the history of the campus interests anyone they can read more at http://www.harper-adams.ac.uk/about/history.cfm

      Thank you for the correction, I was told by a local it was a Manor House. Shall look forward to reading the accurate version on the link you have provided.
