Ludlow Castle information
Perched in an ideal defensive location atop a cliff above a crook in the river, the town castle was built to ward off the marauding Welsh – or to enforce the English expansion into Wales, according to those west of the border. Founded after the Norman conquest, the castle was dramatically expanded in the 14th century.
The Norman chapel in the inner bailey is one of the few surviving round chapels in England, and the sturdy keep (built around 1090) offers wonderful views over the hills.
