Following on from their successful open day on May 18th, Ludlow Castle is offering the unique chance to sponsor a tree within its grounds to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Castle’s purchase by Lord Powis in 1811. The purchase saved the Castle from Government plans of the day to pull it down and sell the stone and timber.
