20 miles southeast of Shrewsbury, along the Severn Valley, is Bridgnorth. The town is split into the High Town and the Low Town. Traditionally, the High Town is the residential area of Bridgnorth, with the Low Town acting as a busy port. A novelty to the town is Bridgnorth Cliff Railway. The funicular railway is the oldest and steepest inland electric cliff railway in the UK and connects the Low and High towns.
Moving to Bridgnorth
The High Town of Bridgnorth is full of 16th and 17th century properties and many head to the west to buy; just on and off the Ludlow Road is the most popular. Similarly, the houses located on the banks of the River Severn are very sought after but, before taking the plunge, ask your estate agent about flooding in this area. Although the winding lanes of both the High and Low towns can be tricky to navigate at first, the town houses and historic cottages in the conservation area are second to none.
If you are a first-time buyer in Bridgnorth, look to have a budget of £70,000 for flat or £130,000 for a small terraced property or cottage. Semi-detached homes fall between £150,000 and £250,000 and larger period cottages – £200,000 to £325,000. Large family detached properties fetch upwards of £300,000 and for the large farmhouses and period townhouses, you will need a budget of £400,000 to £650,000.
If you are looking to rent in Bridgnorth, flats are available for upwards of £400 pcm. Cute terraced cottages start at £550 pcm for one and two bedrooms, rising to £800 for a large family terraced home. Semi-detached and detached homes (of family size) are few and far between, starting at £795 pcm.
Schools in Bridgnorth
There are three primary schools in Bridgnorth; Castlefields, St Leonard’s CofE, and St Joh’s Catholic. St John’s is ‘outstanding’ in the eyes of Ofsted, but also heavily oversubscribed. Both Castlefields and St Leonard’s were ranked ‘good’ in their latest Ofsted inspections.
Secondary schools aren’t particularly strong in Bridgnorth. Bridgnorth Endowed School is ‘satisfactory’ but with ‘many good elements’. Oldbury Wells is ‘good and improving’.
