The Stoneway steps

The Stoneway steps provide a passageway between the High Town and Low Town. The picturesque steps have been carved into the sandstone cliff. 137 steps in all, edged with iron and of uneven size because it was once used by horses, thus they are quite comfortable to walk.

Halfway down the steps you will find the aptly named 'Theatre on the Steps'. This is the former 18th century Congregational Chapel which now houses an amateur theatre company and hosts visiting professional touring companies.

During Bridgnorth's heyday as a thriving port there were upwards of 50 pubs and eateries around Cartway and the quay area. The labourers mainly lived in Low Town because traditionally those with little income were forced tended to have to stay on the “ lower grounds” and be subjected to the turmoils of river’s flooding.
