On the 31st of October, 1934, Ludlow and District Rugger Club held their inaugural meeting in the Feathers Hotel. The majority of attendees at that meeting were teachers at Ludlow Grammar School, where rugby had recently replace football as the game of choice. More than 80 years on Ludlow’s gone from a club that did little other than concentrate on games and social events to one which is at the centre of the community.
The club house sits next to the convergence of the rivers Teme and Corve, in the shadow of Ludlow castle. It’s picturesque location and facilities mean it is used for some kind of social event nearly every day of the week, from wedding receptions to book launches.
The clubs partnership with the local community and schools has seen it awarded the prestigious RFU and Club England Club Mark accreditation award, which is all thanks to the hard work of the many volunteers at the club.
Several players from Ludlow RFC have gone on to play at county and North Midlands level.

Whitcliffe Common is a delightful area of countryside available to all and on the doorstep of one of the loveliest market towns in England. The present Common is all that remains of a much larger medieval common used in the 13th C. to graze livestock, gather hay and quarry stone for the construction of buildings such as Ludlow Castle. On the Common and visible, are the long trenches thought to have been dug by the Parliamentarians for the siege of Ludlow Castle during the Civil War in 1646. Whitcliffe is also of international geological importance for exposures of Silurian strata. The work of Murchison in the 19thC gave the name ‘Whitcliffian” to the Ludlow Bone Beds. In 1821 the tradition began of caring for the area by local residents and this is continued today by the Trustees for The Friends of Whitcliffe Common. The organisers of Storm The Castle are very grateful for the help and support of The Friends of Whitcliffe Common.
