LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CATHEDRAL OF THE MARCHES

10.30 A.M, THURSDAY 1 NOVEMBER, 2018

FOLLOWED BY LUNCH

The tower of St Laurence's Church dominates the Ludlow skyline, but whilst many residents admire the church’s splendour, not everyone knows its history or has really looked at its stunning architecture, monuments, stained glass and carvings.

 A number of 'group guided tours' are currently being planned. Most tours will be created exclusively for a particular organisation or society, but a general tour takes place on Thursday, November 1.  Led by one or more of St Laurence's experienced guides, the event begins at 10.30 am with coffee and cake.

The tour includes the 14th century Porch, the North Aisle, Nave, St John's Chapel, Chancel, Lady Chapel and the South Aisle.  It costs £16 per person, to include refreshments and a two-course lunch.

"We will be contacting history, art and architectural groups throughout the country, inviting them to visit Ludlow and enjoy a tour of St Laurence's, also known as 'the Cathedral of the Marches'", said Rosemary Wood, a member of the Church Tours' Group.

To book places on the November 1 tour, complete the attached Booking Form and send, with cash or a cheque payable to Ludlow PCC  Tours, to Rosemary Wood, Church Tours, The Parish Church of St Laurence, Ludlow, No. 2 College Street, Ludlow, Shropshire, SY8 1AN. 

Bookings should be made no later than October 21, and each booking will be acknowledged.

We hope very much to have the pleasure of welcoming you to St Laurence's on this occasion.

Yours sincerely

Rosemary Wood
