A country town at play 1800-1950

The market town of Ludlow, Shropshire has entertained itself over the last 150 years with events for both rich and poor: from cockfighting to cycling clubs, from genteel balls to rowdy tugs-of-war across the local river.
 
Historian Derek Beattie has created a very lively, highly-illustrated account of Ludlow, a traditional, thriving town in middle England, which shows how the local people amused themselves when not at work.

It is a snapshot of the changing tastes in leisure over a century and half, captured in fascinating original photos and words.
