Dinham Bridge Ludlow

Dinham Bridge Ludlow is a beautiful Stone bridge crossing the Teme in Whitcliffe Park, in the shadow of Ludlow Castle. Sometimes attributed to Thomas Telford , who was Shropshire’s surveyor at the time the bridge was built, it was intact the work of Shrewsbury mason and contractor John Straphen. Dinham Bridge Ludlow was finished in 1823. The bridge is in itself worth seeing, but it also affords some the best views of Ludlow Castle and you can also admire it from the terrace of CSONS at the Green Cafe. The weir that crosses the team just as it passes through the bridge forms a natural swimming pool which is great for taking a dip when it warms up enough, and is very popular with families in the summer. Swans and ducks have made this stretch of the river there home and you might even catch a glimpse of a kingfisher.
