This imaginative map shows the size and layout of medieval Ludlow. The town was surrounded by a stone wall with several fortified gates. The castle occupies the north-west corner of the town. Its northern and western sides are protected by steep cliffs and a ditch was dug to protect its southern and eastern sides. To the south of the town a mill was constructed driven by the flow of the River Teme.
