I know I am prejudiced, as I live only 100yds from this wonder church. Listening to the bells and the wonderful view from the tower makes me have goosebumps. It is a magical experience.

Really enjoyed going up the tower. 200 steps. Very narrow and constantly going around on itself all the way up. There is a vertical rope all the way up to hold onto to make you feel a bit more secure. Good views up the top....More

Lovely, well-maintained church with a high tower. Tower is a strenuous 201 steps up a narrow, spiral stone staircase. Excellent views from top which is significantly higher than the castle. Right in the centre of Ludlow.

A beautiful church, well worth a visit. A climb up to the top of the tower costs about £2 and is well worth it. The views are wonderful especially on a sunny day

This church has beautiful stained glass windows. For £4 each you can go up the tower. Lots of tight narrow steps but the view is well worth the climb. There are views of all across Ludlow.

This chapel is more like a cathedral. It's ancient, located on the western marches and has a marvelous history. I climbed the bell tower on a mostly rainy day and still the view was great. As i was preparing to descend I heard a person...More
