Ludlow is probably the most handsome of Shropshire’s ancient market towns, and one of our favourite places for a day out. It is also the region’s foodie capital so you can usually be sure of something delicious to eat at one of its many inns and restaurants. And it has shops as they used to be – proper butchers, green grocers and bakers. Then there is this place on Corve Street – a magical emporium of light fittings and fixtures. They are all rather expensive so we usually just look in for the show, or press or noses to the window.
March Squares This month Becky wants squares in squares or squared circles.

Ludlow has character, all too lacking in most towns these days…I do like a proper butchers shop, a deli, etc myself!
It also a proper market with some really good farm produce. I’m thinking we should move there!
Haha…and what would become of the allotment? But seriously, it’s a lovely place
Love Ludlow, Tish. We’ve been a couple of times since moving down here. Also, the Ludlow Food Centre, some great choice of food in there.
The Ludlow Food Centre is a great place. It was set up to provide a market for the tenant farmers and makers on the Earl of Powys estate.
One of my favourite shops. I too pressed my nose against that window many times and in fact bought two very expensive table lamps when we moved. Sigh… I do miss the Ludlow market, but boy house prices are something else there.
Yes, there’s always a downside. Wenlock suffers from overpriced houses too, though maybe not in the same league.
The ‘good’ transport links are what bump up the price, especially the train link. We did look for a house with a garden for several years, but couldn’t find one within our budget.
Thanks for that insight.
We are very tempted with this part of the world when we leave Winchester . . . . .so who knows I might be joining you and Jude with my nose pressed up against this window!!
(PS Winchester is even more expensive than Wenlock and Ludlow so we might be lucky)
I thought you wanted beaches? No beaches near Ludlow which is why I moved, much as I love the town.
I want a view – sea view preferable but hills or an estuary will also do, which is why the area around Ludlow keeps coming up!!
Good shot! Love Ludlow – haven’t been for years, long before this project was a twinkle in my eye!
Well worth a re-run 🙂
Beautiful capture of the town as seen in the reflections!
As others have said – gorgeous town that I haven’t visited in too long. Lovely photos Tish
That first one is a particular beauty
Very clever Tish, Becky will love this!
I do!! It is so beautiful and as you say very clever too 🙂
Thank you, Becky, and Gilly 🙂
I’ve never been, but I can tell from your description that I’d love it. But don’t press your nose or other body parts on the glass!! Someone has to clean it!! Can you tell that I’ve had to clean the glass of the pastry cabinet and that over the chocolate truffles at work more than a few times?? 🙂
Ha! Will keep body parts under better control in future 🙂
oops sorry Janet – I won’t either in future!
Love your “nose-to-window” image, Tish!
Thank you, 🙂
Oh the joy of seeing real, independent shops. I keep hoping they’ll make a comeback all over the place, but I’m not holding my breath.
Ludlow started up an annual food festival some years ago, and it’s given the town a real lift on all shopping fronts. But you’re right: they are too lacking pretty much everywhere.
