FALLING IN LOVE WITH LUDLOW
starts in the oldest part of this Shropshire
town. The best way to explore is to head
out on foot to admire the many Tudor-
style half-timbered houses and shops.
This ancient city’s recorded history
began in 1086 when Ludlow Castle was
built as one of a line of structures along
the Welsh Marches to defend the border,
with a new settlement growing up around
it. Today, the town has 500 heritage-listed
buildings – including its oldest and largest
hotel – The Feathers, trading since 1670.
In the main street, butchers shops spruik
pheasant and duck (plucked or unplucked)
and venison, while traditional fishmongers
proffer fresh and smoked varieties. Local
specialties also have visitors flocking to the
annual Ludlow Food Festival, held at the
castle each September.
Some well-preserved stretches of the town
wall (constructed from 1233 onwards) still stand,
and plaques mark the sites of its seven gates.
Only one, the Broad Gate, has survived, with its
drum towers and portcullis arch at the bottom
of modern-day Broad Street.
The River Teme surges through town under
the Ludford Bridge, its gushing weirs a favourite
spot for birdwatching. Other outdoor pursuits
include wonderful walks in the Shropshire Hills,
which link the Midlands with the mountains
There are markets aplenty to explore, with
open-air gatherings taking place in the Market
Square every Monday, Friday and Saturday
throughout the year.
ABOUT THE WRITER
Travel journalist Lee Mylne has been
to more than 60 countries, but still
finds the world full of surprises when
she least expects it.
The poet laureate Sir John
Betjeman described the
medieval market town of
Ludlow as “probably the
loveliest town in England”,
and it’s easy to see why.
WORDS LEE MYLNE
There are also Wednesday markets
from April to September, and a farmers’
market is held on the second Thursday
of every month.
