Warning of height, width and length restrictions through The Broad Gate, Ludlow
Warning of height, width and length restrictions through The Broad Gate, Ludlow
The Broad Gate, at the northern end of Lower Broad Street, is the only survivor of Ludlow's 7 medieval gateways. Vehicles passing through the Broad Gate must be no higher than 8' 6", no wider than 6' and not longer than 42' 6". Only one of those imperial measurements has a metric equivalent shown.
It is unusual for a length restriction to apply - this is the first such sign I recall seeing.
