The Concise History of Ludlow (2nd Ed)

A great deal is known about Ludlow and this illustrated history traces its fascinating development from Anglo-Saxon times right up to the present day. David Lloyd tells the town’s story in which many of the great dramas of English history have been played out. There were times of plague and pestilence, tremendous wealth, royal connections, local quarrels and the ructions of the Civil War. All have shaped the course of Ludlow, one of England’s most beautiful market towns.

The Concise History of Ludlow (2nd Ed) by David Lloyd

Press reviews

Reviewed in Irish Angler Magazine in February 2007

Described as ‘a comprehensive guide for anglers and flytyers’ and on a number of patterns alone it certainly justifies this. Chapters on the history of featherwing flies, European and American patterns are followed by a comprehensive catalogue of dressings. I’d say that it’s more likely to appeal to fly tyers than anglers, but that’s just a personal view. For anyone interested in this area, this book is amine of information.
