One Day One World Round-up

Lisa of Northwest Frame of Mind challenged us to post a photo or story for every hour of the day over a 24 hour period, spaced over 6 months.  Intrigued I decided to play along, and boy was it a challenge!

Here is my ‘day’ – click on the first image to access the carousel and if you want to read the story about each hour then please click the link in each image. I hope you enjoy my world as much as I do 🙂

One Day One World Project: 11:00 – 12:00

The final hour

I spied a spider…

I have done my best to complete the 6 month (24 hour) project set by Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind to show what is happening around the world (both home and away) depicting one hour each week. I ran out of ideas during the middle of the night, so it was good to see how others managed this. It certainly was a challenge! Thank you Lisa for making me think about every hour of every day and getting me to record what has been going on in my world during these last 6 months. Today is the last hour. And in line with the foggy autumn weather which has finally arrived in my part of the world, I offer you a few more photos of Ludlow.

a smoking goat?

On Saturday 20th September Taffy (formally known as Corporal William Windsor), the regimental goat, came to Ludlow along with the 1st Battalion Royal Welsh who were given freedom of the town to mark the 325th anniversary of the Royal Welch Fusiliers.

Best Foot Forward

Ludlow mayor Jim Smithers said “As well as being the 325th anniversary of the raising of the Royal Welch, 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War, so this is the perfect time to commemorate the gratitude of the people of Ludlow to the soldiers past and present who have served this country, not least the Royal Welsh Regiment and its predecessors.”

The history of the regimental goat dates back to the American War of Independence when a wild goat wandered on to a battlefield and ended up leading the regimental Colours at the end of a battle.

There are perks to the job too because Taffy gets a two-a-day cigarette ration, (he eats, them as traditionally the tobacco is thought to be good for the coat) and Guinness to drink when he is older “to keep the iron up“.

Ah! I spy a pub

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world.   This week is between 10:00 – 11:00.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

Never a dull moment in Ludlow!

the food market

A food and drink festival is held in Ludlow twice a year. In spring and autumn. In addition a regular outdoor market is held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; a local produce market twice a month on a Thursday and sometimes there is a craft market on a Sunday. I have posted some of the window displays for the festivals, now let’s take a look at some of the stalls:

Cheese

I quite like a “Mojito” cocktail. Preferably in a glass.

Sausages, Sausage Rolls and Pies

Even those delightful heart-shaped boards can be bought from the market.

Eggs

Plenty of eggs to go around.

Jams and Preserves

The Bells of Ludlow

St Laurence Church

Oh, come you home of Sunday,
When Ludlow streets are still
And Ludlow bells are calling
To farm and lane and mill,

Or come you home of Monday
When Ludlow market hums
And Ludlow chimes are playing
‘The conquering hero comes’

~ partial from The Recruit. A. E. Housman (1859–1936).  A Shropshire Lad.  1896.

The tower of St Laurence’s contains one of the finest rings of 10 bells in the country.  The bells are rung in two distinct ways: by the bell ringers on Sundays and practice evenings; and by the church clock which is controlled electronically and chimes tunes four times a day. The clock chimes a different tune for each day of the week and it plays the tunes at 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 8pm.

Shaun Ward, clerk of works at St Laurence’s said  “The clock tells people to go to work, have their lunch, have a break, go home and go to bed.”
