Ludlow Buttercross and King Street

Ludlow Town Council is delighted that the repair work at the Buttercross has been completed. Our thanks to Olly Preece for his expert craftsmanship, and care and attention in restoring the Buttercross. Excellent job.

The works included repair of a decorative ornamental stone plinth, reworking of damaged dressed stone sections, and insertion of three finely dressed Grinshill stone blocks.

An 80% stone to 20% resin mortar mix was used to the repair the chipped stone on the edge of the building.

The Buttercross is a grade I listed building, and all the materials and methods including the traditional lime mortar have been approval by Shropshire Council’s Buildings Conservation Officer.
