Full moon over Ludlow and St Laurence's
Moonrise over Ludlow - my view of St Laurence’s Church, seen from Whitcliffe Common.
I photographed this scene at sunrise a while back and was delighted to get a contrasting shot from the same spot earlier this month.
St Laurence’s has been described as the Cathedral of the Marches - and it’s easy to see why.
At 135 feet the tower dominates the town, and the chiming of its bells has been a part of everyday life since the early 17th century.
The bells play a different tune for each day of the week and are mentioned by A E Housman in A Shropshire Lad.
