River Teme

The River Teme rises in Mid Wales and flows eastwards through Knighton and Ludlow, it then forms the Shropshire / Worcestershire border before joining the River Severn near Worcester. It is 81 miles long. Its entire length has been designated a SSSI.

Ludlow Castle

Construction of Ludlow Castle began in the late 11th century by the de Lacy's and held by them until the 13th century. In the 14th century it was enlarged by the Mortimers. In the 15th century ownership transferred between the House of York and Lancashire during the War of the Roses. In Elizabethan times the castle was further extended by Sir Henry Sidney. After the civil war the castle declined. It is now owned by the Earl of Powys for the crown.
