Castle Street
Castle Street
The eastern end of Castle Street, with Market Street on the right, High Street in the middle and Church Street and Harp Lane hidden on the left.

Historically, this area was much wider and was where the market was held, but over time the traders' stalls took on a permanent form, resulting in the four streets that now run parallel to each other, in contrast to the full width of the area to the west where the current market takes place (see SO5174 : Ludlow Market - end of day).

The building in the centre of the photo, 8 High Street, housing the fishing and clothing store Orvis, dates from the 18th Century with a 17th Century core and is grade II listed - see LinkExternal link.
