The place itself is easy to find, but hard to get a good picture without being miles away.

One has to be a fair distance away to be able to see the vane, the church being tightly hemmed in by Ludlow's buildings.

Tower view from outside Butter Cross.
A fine view of Ludlow from the top of the castle tower, showing the church tower and vane.

Fine visit. Great to be able to climb the tower. Normally in ancient churches there are so few opportunities to do so.

Had an interesting chat in St. Lawrence's with the chap on duty and learned some interesting things about its history. A fine church in the middle of a bustling market town.

Tower was open so we decided to get a closer look at the vane, great views and well worth the steps (200 I think) up the steep tower, never letting go of the rope!

Visited Ludlow after doing Bringewood (HuMP) and High Vinnalls (Marilyn). Very large parish church, known locally as the Cathedral of the Marches. 10thC origins, rebuilt 1199 and extensive re-modelling 15thC. This is an impressive parish church by any standard. Currently swathed in scaffolding, roof & pinnacles are undergoing repair, along with stonework and windows. For a donation of 3 the 206 steps to top of the 41m tower can be negotiated giving extensive views over Ludlow and surrounding area. Looked for a bolt whilst I was up there, but since found there isn't one.

Having been up Liverpool cathedral tower earlier in the week I decided to just view this one from the pavement. Found during a pleasant walk around the town.

Tower ticket from shop inside church. Steep spiral staircase; 200 steps to roof. Aerial views of the town showing the grid layout including Corve St, Bull Ring, Buttercross, Broad Street and the Marketplace. Clee Hill somewhat blurry but Callow Hill monument visible to N. Rain approaching from Woofferton.

St Lawrence's tower was open for a small fee. A very fine viewpoint. The vane was there the last time I looked.
