Month: September 2018

In what must be one of the most bizarre actions by an office bound railway official, Network Rail has written to residents in Steventon on the outskirts of Ludlow telling them that it needs to undertake work on parish’s railway bridge. So far, so good. But Ludford residents became suspicious when they read references to the High Street. A High Street in Steventon, a hamlet on the outskirts of Ludlow? Hardly.

This is a brief update to collate a few diverse matters relating to this project. They concern the review by Defra, delays in submitting the planning application and doubts about whether the Forestry Commission is achieving value for money by its relationship with Forest Holidays. The breaking news is that English Heritage has withdrawn from its promotion of Forest Holidays under pressure from a Ludlow resident.

The Ludlow mural project in images

We did it. Five weeks from conception to completion. Just ten days on site. An eyesore is now a head turner. Below are images of the project in progress and completed. Our thanks to Morris Property for funding the project. Also to Shropshire Council for providing youth workers for the Young Zone. A huge part of our community contributed to this project. Thank you all.
