Concerns grow for safety and heritage at St Julian’s Well, Ludlow

We are growing concerned about the wellbeing of historic St Julian’s Well on Livesey Road, Ludlow. The well is a Grade II Listed Building. A small number of stones at the base of the well cover have been damaged. The well is in the middle of the road and it is not clear whether this is from passing traffic, from grit and salt spread on the road, or just because the monument is decaying with age. Teenagers sometimes sit on the cover at night and that might be why the cover seems to be sinking. We don’t want the cover to collapse into the space beneath and people to be hurt. As the photographs below show, the monument has notably decayed in the last two years.
