This new collection of images traces some of the changes that have taken place in and around this vibrant community over the centuries. It is a town with a long and surprising history, which began with the imposing Norman castle in the control of the infamous Mortimer family. Due to its position in the borderlands, by the Tudor period it became the virtual capital of neighbouring Wales, and the castle was home to some of the country's best known nobles.Though the town's importance declined from the 1700s, as the administrators withdrew to London, Ludlow retained its charm and elegance. Today it is often voted among the nicest towns in the country, and its festivals and restaurants draw visitors from all over the world. This selection of old images and stunning colour photography takes the reader on a journey through the history of Ludlow that is sure to reawaken memories of recent times past.
