Ludlow is a parliamentary borough, standing on a beautiful bend of the Teme, in Shropshire, but close to the borders of Herefordshire, from which the river divides it.
This place forms a great centre of the iron trade, and has become one of growing importance. The people are engaged in the manufacture of almost everything useful in iron and steel wares, and the districts around are rich in the products of iron coal, quarry-stone, &c., &c.
