Bridgnorth named among top six places to go in UK

Original article by Rory Smith for https://www.shropshirestar.com/

Readers of a national newspaper have put Bridgnorth among the top six places to go in the country.


The guide book firm Lonely Planet recently named England as the second best place in the world to visit in 2020 behind Bhutan and readers of the Guardian responded by compiling a list of the country’s most idyllic places.

The town sits alongside Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, Trough of Bowland in Lancashire, Helford estuary in Cornwall, Painshill Park in Surrey and Kirky Lonsdale in Cumbria.

Resident Ellen Davis moved to the town nearly two decades ago.

She said it was no surprise Bridgnorth had been highlighted as the place to visit.

“I think it’s partly because it’s an unusual, beautiful place that is near cities like Birmingham and Wolverhampton and other big places like Telford, yet it’s got a great community and lovely atmosphere,” she said.

“It’s got a lovely old town hall and all sorts of unusual historic buildings, not to mention it has got High Town and Low Town which truly is like no other.

“I moved here about 19 years ago, I love living here and it was so lovely to see it receive recognition in a national paper.”

Bridgnorth was noted for its stunning views, historic railway and castle ruins.

The top six list states: “Charles I is thought to have called the view from Bridgnorth the finest in the kingdom.

“Split in two by the River Severn, residents are transported from High Town to Low Town by the Cliff Railway, the oldest and steepest inland electrical funicular in England.

“The ruins of Bridgnorth Castle lean at an angle of 15 degrees – four times the lean of the leaning tower of Pisa.”

Carvers Wolverhampton Half Marathon Events

The Wolverhampton Marathon has been part of the local scene since its original foundation in the 1980’s. There was a short period when it did not take place and then it was revived in 2002 by Carvers, to their great credit. This was our first year involved with this remarkable event and we were incredibly honoured to be asked to be one of the headline sponsors.

Huge credit goes to the Marathon Committee at Carvers, the marketing team at OLCO design and Vernon Dodd, The sponsors; The Grand Theatre, Banks Brewery and Paycare, all the support staff, the volunteers and the residence of Wolverhampton who filled West Park and lined the streets cheering on and supporting the participants. Without everyone pulling together and embracing the sense of Community the event wouldn’t have been the same.

Thankfully the sun was shining and the day ran perfectly, and more importantly the staff and their families that took part in some of the events managed to get into work on the Monday morning.



Dianne Hennessy’s Retirement

After 24 years serving Eaton Estates and latterly Berriman Eaton, Dianne is retiring from the profession to spend more time with her family and assist in her daughters pet shop business in Kinver.

Dianne was part of the offices founding team in Wombourne and a most valuable part of the team with her breath of experience, mentoring the younger members of staff and ensuring that all systems run smoothly.

After such a long career, Dianne has been working with second and third generation local families for their house sale and purchases and will be sadly missed by all clients and staff that have worked with her. We wish her all the very best for a busy retirement!
