Ludlow town walls, Ludlow - Shropshire (UA)

Medieval town walls in multiple ownership. Historic England has helped to fund a town walls management plan and the repair of substantial sections in local authority ownership. A Town Walls Trust has been established to promote the protection and care of the walls. A major section of wall below the parish church collapsed in spring 2013, Historic England has advised the Town Council on repairs. Issues relating to ownership and liability have now been largely resolved and the Town Council has appointed a consultant Structural Engineer to carry out an options appraisal to inform repair costs.
