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.
At this place are the remains of two castles, and an immense camp with four ditches to be seen. The church is cruciform, and contains some interesting monuments.
