Bridgnorth

Bridgnorth is named after a bridge over the River Severn, that was built further north than an earlier bridge at Quatford. The earliest historical reference to the town is in 895, at which time it is recorded that the Danes created a camp at ‘Cwatbridge.’ Local legend has it at Danesford, the last winter camp of Hastein the Viking in 895/896 before he disappeared into obscurity. Around 300 long boats would have been needed to bring in such a large force which would have meant they were moored along the length of The River Severn from Quatford, though Danesford to Bridgnorth - approximately 3 miles. Subsequently in 912, Æthelfleda constructed a mound on the west bank of the River Severn, or possibly on the site of Bridgnorth Castle, as part of an offensive against the Danes.
