Walk: A wander around the historic town of Ludlow
Start Point: Broad Sreet Grid Reference:  
Weather: Warm and sunny

Ludlow's roots reach back to medieval times. Made rich by manufacturing and trading wool and cloth, by the 16th century it had become a major administrative centre, governing Wales and the border counties.

Situated on the River Teme, Ludlow's medieval street pattern survives almost intact, the being lined with medieval and Georgian houses. One of Ludlow's strengths is its wide and varied range of indiviudualistic shops, mostly independently owned.
