Bridgnorth was a pretty little town. We arrived shortly before lunchtime, and I have to say that the parking experience is probably one of the worst I've ever witnessed. It's a little town, with a bustling market, and being rural I think everyone drives into it, but there doesn't seem to be the car parking infrastructure to deal with it. After about 15 minutes of driving around the couple of under sized car parks, we finally bagged a space.
The town itself is lovely, it's all little winding alleyways with a hotchpotch of ancient, old and more modern buildings.
There's a thriving market, lots of charity shops (unfortunately I didn't find those too fruitful), antique shops and a lovely little tea room. We took lunch from a hot dog wagon in the market, which was delicious, and thanks to the dry weather we were blessed with, we were able to eat outside.
The town is on two levels, high town and low town, connected by a cliff railway. Alas, we only had time to visit the busier high town, which is why we didn't get to see the river or anything, if we went back I'd definitely want to see the low town, although I'm not sure hubby would be too keen to deal with that car parking situation again in a hurry.
Heading back to the car park we found this gorgeous little vintage shop, filled to the rafters with the most beautiful coats and dresses. It was just a shame that I couldn't afford any of it, but I love it when you find a shop like this where the stock is such good quality. Shropshire seems to be really good for vintage, I remember the vintage shops in Ludlow when we went.
Today has been a perfect Sunday too, a lazy lie in and pretty much a whole lazy day. This picture of Alfie just about sums it up really.
