I guess you might be back all ready. Did you like Ludlow? Even without the Newsfield connection, it's a very nice place to visit and spend a bit of time in. Did you make it to the Ludlow museum, is the Newsfield exhibition still there?
unfortunately the museum was closed on the days I was there. It will be an excuse to come back
The town was small and pretty, definitely a nice place to spend some time. I just wonder how the young members of the editorial team could spend months or years there, given the scarcity of night life...
The Case Mill. Here Newsfield relocated some time in 1990. Much larger than King Street, but also far from the centre (although, the town being small, nothing is really very far). Nice position, next to the river Teme. The only identifiable business that's based there nowadays is a veterinary practice, who knows whether it occupies the whole of it.
King Street! Victoria Wine has been replaced by a healthy food shop. I am convinced, but not entirely sure, that offices of Barclays now occupy the upper floors (I didn't have the courage to ask the bank clerks)
Round the corner, in the alley between King Street and St. Laurence church (the city's largest), the blue plaque
What? One of Monty Python has a travel agency in Castle Square?
