A large and interesting parish church. Interested to find it was in a Yorkist stronghold. The staff were very helpful in pointing out things that one might have missed.

Outstanding gothic perpendicular architecture, misericord carvings and (much later additions) stained glass windows. Try to be there at midday for the bells. The young couple Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon lived in Ludlow during their brief marriage and his heart is buried in the church.

Amazing church with history, told beautifully. On the day I visited it was being used as a creche - how wonderful to see a churn being used for the community.
