LUDLOW CASTLE

Ludlow castle
Ludlow's recorded history begins in 1086 when the impressive castle was first developed. Ludlow Castle is situated on a hill overlooking the rivers Teme and Corve, and was built as one of a line of castles along the Marches. When it was founded by the de Lacy family of Stanton Lacy between 1086 and 1094 the castle would have occupied a much smaller area than it does now. The orginal planned town of Ludlow was laid out from the castle gates very soon afterwards.




HISTORIC ARCHITECTURE

The many fine examples of period architecture include St Laurence's Church, the Feathers HotelDeGrey's Tea Rooms and Ludlow Assembly Rooms, which houses Ludlow's  Arts Centre.
