The Buttercross

The Buttercross

The Buttercross faces down Broad Street and was built in 1743 - 46 to replace the 16th Century New House, where the Corporation held its meetings. It was originally the site of the High Cross, which was the official centre of the town. The building was designed by William Baker of Audlem.

The upper rooms have been used variously as a boys' charity school and the Ludlow Museum.
