Worth dropping in from the main shopping area but easily missed if new to Ludlow. In the heart of the town but tucked away with directions on a sandwich board this imposing church is a fabulous surprise. Warm welcome, good shop and plenty to inspire.

Make sure you visit this church if it is open for visitors (services permitting). It is on a grand scale and has a lot of interesting features including some very fine stain glass windows.
