Charles Darwin Statue
The most impressive of Shropshire's stately homes, Attingham Park was built in imposing neoclassical style in 1785. With its grand columned facade and manicured lawns, and a stagecoach turning-circle in the courtyard, the house could have been plucked straight from a bodice-ripping period drama.
Across from the tourist office, the wonky Guildhall, built in classic Tudor style in 1540, features some splendidly ornate woodcarving. One of the pillars supporting it was used for public floggings in medieval times.
A short walk north of the Guildhall, the ancient, eroded Holy Trinity Church was built in 1150 over Saxon foundations. Note the Norman arch as you enter with the (as yet) undeciphered initials 'AB' and 'RI' on either side. Also look out for the old police station nearby, a good-looking building from 1864.
Bridgnorth & Around
Just south of town, Daniels Mill is the largest working water-powered mill in the country, and it still produces flour for local bakers. Visitors get a personal tour of the working machinery from the resident miller.
