Bridgnorth's cliff railway up for sale

Bridgnorth's Cliff Railway has been put up for sale. Allan and Jean Reynolds are selling all the shares in the Bridgnorth Castle Hill Railway Company, which includes the historic Cliff Railway.

The couple, who bought the railway 15 years ago after taking early retirement, have decided the time is right to retire for a second time.

Included in the asking price of between £700,000 and £800,000 is also a guesthouse, a tearoom and a flat.

The railway, which is open seven days a week, links High Town and Low Town. Mrs Reynolds said: "It will not necessarily be sold to the highest bidder. It will be sold to the most suitable bidder.

"We feel we have a responsibility for the railway. It is important to Bridgnorth from a tourism point of view.

"It is important to some of our passengers because it is their method of transport from High Town to Low Town.

"This isn't just a railway, it's part of Bridgnorth."

She added: "We have had a wonderful 15 years."
