We decided to head towards Ludlow for the day however we decided to take the long way through Long Mynd. We had read in our guide books that there was good walking in the Long Mynd but was not sure what sort of county it was. What we discovered was an area of wild moor land latticed with foot paths and some stunning views. It was not good walking weather so we enjoyed the drive over the moors and the country lanes as we headed to Ludlow. This was an area we have now marked down to return to at a future date.
We arrived at Ludlow which is perched on a hill above the River Teme and wandered through the town busy with Saturday shoppers. The town has a, large number of black and white Tudor timbered buildings and the ruins of the vast Ludlow Castle the original seat of the Lord President of the Council of the Marches built to defend the area against the Welsh.
After our walk around Ludlow on our way back to the campground in Shrewsbury we found a wonderful local estate food market which was very popular and some really nice local meat and produce.
