The Concise History of Ludlow
by David Lloyd
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.
