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 sections of wall in both private and local authority ownership. A Town Walls Trust has been established to promote the protection and care of the walls. Following the collapse of a substantial length of wall below the parish Churchyard in 2013, Historic England provided advice to the Town Council who are responsible for its repair. The Town Council has appointed a consultant Structural Engineer to carry out an options appraisal to inform repair costs.
