One of the nicest churches with so much to appreciate.

This is a real gem tucked away in Ludlow. Lovely architecture, beautiful glass and interesting history.

fascinating wood carvings in the misericords (learnt that word on my trip to Ludlow!) and the quilt commemorating Housman's centenary was beautiful and symbolic.

Beautiful building with strong links to the Yorkist Mortimer family. There were plenty of historical momentous from the wars of the Roses (check out the stain glass window of Edward IV & the wooden carvings in the choir stalls)
There were plenty of volunteers willing to help, who had good knowledge.
A nice gift shop to browse around.

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.
