Ludlow’s Galdeford to close for around nine days for essential repairs in November

With the A49 and Brand Lane closures, we have about had our fill of road closures in Ludlow this year. But there is one more scheduled closure to come. The top end of Lower Galdeford and Upper Galdeford will be closed from 6 to 16 November during the day to resurface the road surface. There will be temporary traffic lights on the junction of Upper Galdeford, Station Drive and Gravel Hill for one day the week before. This work is essential and has been already delayed to avoid the tourist season.

Proposed parliamentary constituencies – Ludlow joins Leominster and Bridgnorth moves in with Wrekin

Ludlow constituency is set to see major changes if proposals put forward by the Boundaries Commission are adopted by parliament. Nearly 8,000 people will be moved into the constituency from north Herefordshire and it will be renamed Leominster and Ludlow. Bridgnorth will join the Wrekin and Wellington. There are small expansions to Telford and Shrewsbury constituencies, while North Shropshire remains unchanged under the proposals.
