Buttercross Museum Ludlow

The Buttercross Museum, Ludlow is a fabulous little museum above the Buttercross  in the centre of town. It is and is full of interesting local artefacts and information, as well as affording a great view down Broad Street, one of Ludlows’ most famous streets. Ludlow’s unique geology is depicted in the Murchison Section – a drawing of the geological cross section of Ludlow drawn up by Robert Murchison in 1852 and represents an important stage in the development of Geology as an academic discipline. There are also items from the Bitterly Hoard , a collection of post medieval coins found in the nearby village of Bitterly, as well as fossils, and an beautiful sword pommel.
