Clive’s last book

He has researched and written 22 books about the History of Bridgnorth, and now prolific local historian Clive Gwilt is hanging up his pen with a final flourish as ‘Bridgnorth from Old Photographs’ is published by Ambereley Books.

Containing many previously undiscovered pictures, including details from a Nazi guide book (it is believed Bridgnorth was earmarked to be Hitler’s HQ), a picture of HMS Shropshire and some fascinating Coronation pictures, the book is available from local bookshops and the Tourist Information. Born and educated in Bridgnorth, Clive Gwilt spent 11 years in the Merchant Navy before returning to live and work in the town. He was presented with the UK Merchant Seafarers Badge in 2007 and recently met the Prime Minister.
