Talbot Court sits within the High Town, less than half a mile from the High Street which is a relatively easy level walk to get to where you will find lots of high street and independent shops along with a Sainsburys supermarket which is only 200 meters away and the Budgen convenience store is right next door to the development. For further convenience The Bridgnorth GP Medical Practice is only 400 meters away and this is next to Bridgnorth Community Hospital.
