On a very wet day in August 2012, we decided to take a trip on the Severn Valley Railway, it’s a heritage railway in Shropshire and Worcestershire and the 16-mile heritage line runs along the Severn Valley from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster. We arrived at the Kidderminster Station and the rain was doing what it does best, pouring down. Luckily by the time the train left the station it had decided to ease off.
Once onboard we settled down with warming cups of coffee and watched the countryside passing by, when suddenly I saw some elephants walking around, we were passing the West Midland Safari Park. You have a great overall view of the park from the train and I should imagine the animals are used to the train by now, they seemed to be.
We arrived at Bridgnorth Station, and there is quite a long walk to the town, which is split into two, Low Town and High Town. To reach High Town, its best to take the Cliff Railway and you get to see the stunning views. We had a wander around the town, which was quite busy as it was market day. We then walked back down to the station, to have a look at the trains, that we had noticed earlier. I would like to re-visit on a sunny day, as it was very damp and overcast, not good for photos, hence they are mono, and I missed the castle, so thats a good excuse to go back.
Next stop Bridgnorth Station.
