Welcome to Ludlow’s unique lido on the hottest day of the year

This is Ludlow at its most fantastic on Sunday 18 June. A real delight for the eyes. You could not have visited the Millennium Green beside the Teme today with wanting to laugh, splash in the river or just have a sneaky ice cream.

I was heading towards the Millennium Green at Dinham Bridge after a report of fly-tipping. I couldn’t help but smile and laugh as the children leaped on and off the weir.

I even paddled out myself, even if only to get a snap of a sofa and a child’s bike that had washed downstream. We’ll report this debris to the Environment Agency.

The frame of the kid’s bike looks good to me. Maybe someone will adopt it but I wouldn’t recommend the sofa. Two minutes on it was enough for me.
