The Market Hall.
Built in 1887 it was described by Nicolas Pevsner as 'Ludlow's bad luck..
There is nothing that could be said in favour of its fiery brick or useless
Elizabethan detail'. The market hall was demolished in 1986. and the space
today is used for market stalls.
Corve Street 1910.
Corve Street leads north, and was the main road to Shrewsbury. In fact,
as a route way Corve Street, and Old street into which it leads to the
south, may well have followed an old Roman, or even earlier, route linking
with a ford across the River Teme.
The Bull Ring 1892
All the buildings in this picture have since been stripped to their timber
framing. Especially interesting is the shop on the left; it is now revealed
as a medieval toll-booth for people coming to trade in the market, and
is therefore known as the Tolsey.
The Butter Cross.
The Butter Cross was built in 1744 at a cost of £1,000 as a Town
Hall, and ever since it has dominated the view along Broad Street. It
served as a butter market, hence its name. The upper floor was used for
a school-The Blue Coat Charity School.
