The Readers House

The Reader's House is a late medieval stone building owned by the Palmer's Guild and housing the Grammar School in the late 15th Century.

Originally entered from the Bull Ring, it was leased to Thomas Kay, the Chaplain to the Council of the Marches, who made a new entrance from the Churchyard in 1616, adding the fine timber framed porch. Note the details of the carving of woodwork - typical of early 17th Century Ludlow carpentry.
