On the Sunday of Compostgirls birthday weekend we went to Ludlow. We knew there would be loads of people trying to park in the town so we parked outside and had a pleasant walk in through the streets
Lots of street entertainers were there - this lady was an Ice Queen statue - and very good she was! Until she moved, which was a bit of a surprise :)
Lots of stalls in the Castle square, but we wanted to get into the main event which was being held in the Castle proper.
Fabulous displays by re enactment groups, and loads of people demonstrating living history.
Compostman and Compostgirl went up to the top of the tower - I don't like heights so I went shopping :)
At the end of the day we had fun watching Knights of Plantagenet re enact a fight between the English and the French. Very realistic fighting and I bet they had bruises on their bruises that night!
We had a good day out but I was jolly cold at the end and glad to get home and light the fire.
