  Looking down Old Street towards Ludford Bridge, Ludlow, Shropshire, England   Old Street, Ludlow.

This street goes due south and eventually goes across Ludford Bridge over the River Teme. This street, together with The Bull Ring and Corve Steet cut through the town from north to south.

The gables down on the right are on the timber-framed builing next to the Old gatehouse.

The white building to the right of the lamppost is the Wheatsheaf Inn built in 1668 and to the left of that can be seen the archway through the 13th century Broadgate into Broad Steet.

The pavement here is much lower than the road as can be seen by the steps down. I cannot, yet, find an explanation for this.

  High Street, Ludlow, Shropshire, England   High Street, Ludlow.

This is the middle road of three narrow roads running in parallel from the end of King Street through to Castle Square.

You can see that this is not a town for the motorist, let alone tourist coaches, it must be explored on foot to be able to appreciate it's narrow streets and magnificent buildings.
