Bridgnorth Castle

Image: Remains of Bridgnorth Castle, Shropshire. The castle was one of the picturesque sites for visitors to the Severn, a location for numerous legends about the locality.

“The founder or date of the foundation of the castle, does not appear to be known….its only remains were what seemed to be part of a tower. This Leaning Tower, as it is termed…formed an angle of nearly seventy-three degrees with the horizon; a position which…it still maintains.”

Harral, vol.1, p 261.
