No date yet for Buttercross repairs – King Street to remain closed for a few weeks at least

Ludlow Town Council briefly discussed repairs to the Buttercross on Monday night. Councillors were told that stonemasons had been appointed and work had started on stone in hand. More stone has been ordered from Grinshill Quarry but there was as yet no date on delivery. There was no debate, though Councillor Viv Parry said market traders were giving false information about the closure and asked for someone to tell them to shut up. King Street cannot reopen until the Buttercross is repaired and that looks to be a few weeks away. At least the weather is warm. Lime mortar will not set below 5C and that is another reason for getting this work completed as soon as possible.
