Around Fort Pendlestone

Local life

Fort Pendlestone is an utterly unique and important building, both nationally in terms of its architecture, and regionally as a wonderful example of a historic Shropshire Mill. Bridgnorth itself is an attractive, market town and has been previously named winner of the Great British High Street.

It’s just under a mile to Bridgnorth Low Town and its local amenities, which include an M&S, butchers, and friendly pubs and eateries. Amazing spots are the Falcon Hotel & restaurant, Bishops Percy and The Boat Yard. A further 10-minute stroll over the river takes you to High Town, with its vibrant array of bars, restaurants and independent shops. Our top picks of beautiful Grade ll listed bars include The Atrium, The Old Swan, The Shakespeare, and The Royle.


Well connected

If you prefer to sit back and simply enjoy the views, then the cliff funicular railway is beautiful and runs between Low Town and High Town daily. Or head aboard a vintage steam train on the Severn Valley Railway. Where better than the River Severn to spend a leisurely Sunday ambling along or finding the perfect spot for fishing? There are country parks to enjoy Shropshire’s great outdoors, museums, and even a ruined 12th century castle and gardens.

There is an excellent choice of schools in the locality, with six primary schools and two secondary schools ranging from just one to four miles away, all of which are rated Good by Ofsted, as well as several independent schools. Being centrally located, the transportation links, either by car, train or plane are excellent.
