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.
There is an old church here, some of the ornaments of which were spoil from the Abbey Cwmhir, in Radnorshire. A spacious flannel hall has been erected.
A short distance beyond Newtown is a romantic glen and waterfall; we then come to Llan-yr-Afange (the Beaver’s pool) and four remarkable camps.
