Another must see is Ludlow Castle built 1066–85 and currently exists as a ruined medieval fortification in the town of the same name in the English county of Shropshire, standing on a promontory overlooking the River Teme. The castle was probably founded by Walter de Lacy after the Norman conquest and was one of the first stone castles to be built in England.
Ludlow castle became Crown property in 1461 and remained a royal castle for the next 350 years.
Since 1811 the castle has been owned by the Earl of Powis who has allowed this magnificent monument to be open to the public.
The castle is one of the finest medieval ruins inn England set in the glorious Shropshire countryside at the heart of Ludlow Town.
