The Tower of St Laurence's Church in Ludlow
The Tower of St Laurence's Church in Ludlow
St Laurence's, one of England's finest churches, is a member of the Greater Churches Group. Largely rebuilt in the fifteenth century in the soaring perpendicular style of the day, the church has features of the Norman, Early English and Decorated periods, including the delightful hexagonal south porch. It protects a remarkable collection of artistic treasures, including good medieval and later glass, well carved fifteenth century misericords and bench-ends, a fine series of memorials and a superb Snetzler organ.

The Virgin Mary as portrayed in the 15th century Annunciation window in St John's Chapel. Her arms are crossed in humility as she receives divine rays from God the Father in Heaven.

The fifteenth century Pieta bench-end. With a few strokes the carver has given Mary's face such a look of suffering as you do not find even in sixteenth-century painting.
