Ludlow dates back before 1138, is a medieval walled market town and also the largest town in South Shropshire, England. It is close to the Wales border in the Welsh Marches on an inside bend next to the River Teme on the east bank. Centred on top of a little hill is Ludlow Castle and the town’s market. Construction of Ludlow Castle began in 1086 with the walls of the town being erected not long after. Ludlow is a haven for listed buildings with more than 450. Ludlow’s wide streets are flanked by distinguished properties, many being from the Georgian era. The town is dominated by its cruciform church and the castle. The castle is amongst the great border castles and with extensive stone walls and towers that occupy good defensive positions above the river. The church has a tall central tower which is amongst the country’s biggest and most striking parish churches. You reach the church along a labyrinth of alleys and narrow streets. The church is a good example of a wealthy, mainly fifteenth century town church with an uncommonly wide and roomy interior which is like a cathedral in size.
