Bridgnorth MPD comprises Bridgnorth Loco Works and the associated coaling, watering and storage facilities. It also includes several rented commercial premises in Station Lane including that known as the Graham Hill building (containing the staff mess room and ESMP offices) and the former David Dexter's car service garage (used for additional storage).

The MPD is not normally open to the public except during special events such as the Open House Weekend. At other times a limited view is available from Platform 2 or the footbridge.

Cowans Sheldon 30-ton steam crane RS 1087 and several well wagons, used to store locomotive boilers and other large parts, are stabled at Bridgnorth MPD.
