             What do we do?

The Buttercross, 1742, now the home of Ludlow Town Museum
The Friends of Ludlow Museum support the museum in the historic Buttercross.  Access is either by the narrow staircase off the pedestrianised Church Street or by the lift located within the open space on the ground floor.
It is now open regularly, 3 days a week 10.00-16.00 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday; special arrangements apply on Bank Holidays)

Ludlow Library and Museum Resource Centre
Through volunteer work and fundraising the Friends provide help to the Shropshire Museums Resource Centre located in Parkway, under the same roof as the library.

storage of geological specimens
This is where the collections are looked after and stored.
They are held in climate-controlled stores and include fossils of international importance and biological material of national note, as well as social history collections relating directly to the county of Shropshire and to Ludlow town.

children exploring the collections
We provide financial support to educational projects for school children both at the Museums Resource Centre and in their schools.

The Friends assist in the purchase of artefacts and funding professional conservation of the collections.

We also take an active role in volunteering within the Museum and Resource Centre, undertaking various projects with professional guidance.

Between September and April, a programme of lectures covering a wide range of topics is held on the third Monday of the month at the Resource Centre, starting at 7.30pm.
