Here we are at Ludlow Castle. Nancy is on the left and you know the rest, yes that is my sister Erika. Our first day of full sun and wow did we all pay for that. Lets just say I have my base now. The grounds were lovely and the Shakespear festival was seeting up the set for a performance so so,me access was limited. We climbed up some pretty narrow staircases which I could only imagine someone going to protect the castle would have done years ago. The windows, don't know if you can see from this pic are smaller or non existant onthe bottom so that penetration of the castle was minimized. I still have some notes to right about it and when I finish them I'll update some more. Updates about Ludlow- was built in the 1300's commissioned by Edward II for a Baron named Mortimer. The Mortimer family was an ally to Edward so they lived in this castle which is not as big as a castle that would be built for a king.
