Ludlow racecourse

Two miles north of Ludlow itself, this quaint jumps course can be found off the A49. It is right-handed, undulating and about a mile and a half round.

Racing is well-established with records back to 1729, though jumping did not take place until the mid 19th Century. The course retains its Edwardian character and a Club atmosphere.
