The Severn Valley Railway runs from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth as a steam preservation tourist railway.
On Sundays, lunch is available on the train whilst travelling through the beautiful scenery of the Severn Valley. The price for a 3 course luncheon is £17.50 and must be booked in advance.
The restaurant cars and train are all restored to 1930's style as are the stations. Lucheon is served in 1930's opulant style too.

Address: See the link.
There are a smattering of pubs in the villiage of Highley but the only one that is near to the railway station and the River Severn is the Ship Inn.
It has a large garden area and right on the River Severn. Looking across the river there is an uninterupted view of countryside gently sloping up from the waters edge.
The Ship has picnic type tables outside so that in fine weather you can sit out and enjoy a cool, refreshing pint of beer. There is a wall to the pubs grounds and so is child friendly.
Dress Code: Casual.

Address: Station Road, Highley.
It is proposed to build an educational and railway interest 'Steam Herritage' centre at Highley, just across the road from the Severn Valley Railway's station, in the old disused coal yard.
The centre will be 'rail fed' from the existing trackwork at the station and by reinstating the level crossing over the roadway that only goes down to the houses and the Ship Inn by the banks of the River Severn

The River Severn is a notoriously dangerous river to swim in. There are undercurrents and the river bottom can drop away deep without any visual indication.
I have been raft racing on the Severn and have run aground. One of the crew has jumped off and been out of his depth in less than two metres from the running aground point.

Favorite thing: Highley is located between Bridgnorth and Bewdley on the western side, (Welsh), of the River Severn.
This map helps define the exact location of Highley.
Fondest memory: Highley has changed a lot since its humble origins as a purely mining villiage.
Now, Highley, situated on the banks of the river Severn, is interested in nature preservation and tourism as may be found by visiting the country park.
It keeps its link to coal mining in the form of monuments and museum exhibits.
I have a better detailed map on my travelogue Map (Link).
