Exploring Architecture in Bridgnorth

The new brief for Experimental Typography involves looking at the surrounding architecture in Wolverhampton. I live in Bridgnorth and the town has a wide variety of architecture from the 1800's. I took a range of photographs in the low town area of the town, including a photograph of a building built in 1580 and is now a Grade 1 listed building and was one of the few buildings of its type to survive the great fire of Bridgnorth in 1646.

Other photographs include that of The Bassa Villa, a local pub house, which in fact is where I work part-time. This will be a great place for me to get photographs of the interior architecture of the buildings as all of the original beams are still in tact. When passing cars go over the low town bridge to their right they will see an advertising print of the side of a building which has been there 1616. As well as zoomed in shots of the high town featuring both churches St. Marys (Green dome on the top) and St. Leonards. As well as the Wesleyan Chapel, now the methodist church, of 1853.
