Looking down Broad Street

A 1992 view of shop in Broad Street, Ludlow. On the left are a shop called Valentine's, De Grey's Cafe, and the Angel Hotel. At the right is parked a Ford Fiesta (which with a 'F' registration would be about three years old).
Ludlow is a small town in South Shropshire. It is situated on a small hill on the eastern bank of a bend in the River Teme. The town has a long history dating back to Norman times and has nearly 500 listed buildings LinkExternal link , including a castle and one of the largest parish churches in the country. The old town was a 13th century planned grid iron town surrounded by a wall, with seven gates (only one remains). There are many examples of Tudor, Elizabethan and Georgian buildings. Today Ludlow is a thriving Market town with a healthy tourist trade. Described as "The most perfect town in England" - John Betjeman Wikipedia: LinkExternal link Website: LinkExternal link
