About US

Originally opened in 1862 Bridgnorth was the principal intermediate station and crossing point between Hartlebury and Shrewsbury. After its last BR passenger service in September 1963 it was saved by preservationists and reopened to Hampton Loade in 1970. We have the only listed building on the Severn Valley Railway, grade II first listed in 1974, and many other unique features which we’ll tell you about here.
