Artist's Description

Ludlow Castle, Shropshire, England.
(camera: Canon EOS 20D)

The Castle Fortress that the de Lacy’s built, occupies a finely judged defensive position. Guarded by both the rivers Teme and Corve, Ludlow Castle stands prominently on high ground, able to resist attack from would be invaders from over the Welsh border. Stone was readily available, being quarried from the castle’s own site, and water was obtained from a deep well – sunk from what is now the Inner Bailey, down to the level of the River Teme

Ludlow as a Royal Castle
Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, Ludlow Castle was held by the Crown, except for a brief time during the Civil War and the Commonwealth. It enjoyed great status as the centre of administration for the Marches shires and for Wales – court sessions and the Prince’s Council were held here. This led to massive refurbishment of the buildings and the castle became styled more in the way of an Elizabethan stately home.

The Princes in the Tower
The story of the murder of the two young princes in the Tower of London is well known, but before they met their untimely and mysterious deaths, Prince Edward and his younger brother Richard had spent most of their childhood years at Ludlow Castle. Prince Edward was at Ludlow when he received the news of his father’s death and he acceeded to the title of Edward 1V. However, he was never crowned, for when he and his brother arrived in London, they were immediately imprisoned in the Tower and soon after murdered. Their uncle, Richard, then became King Richard 111, and although his guilt has never been proven, posterity has settled the blame for their deaths on Richard’s shoulders.

The Song – Moonlight Shadow
Moonlight Shadow
music and lyrics by Mike Oldfield
sung by Maggie Reilly
-—————————————————————————————————————-

The last that ever she saw him,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
He passed on worried and warning,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
Lost in a riddle that Saturday night,
Far away on the other side.
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
And she couldn’t find how to push through.

The trees that whisper in the evening,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
All she saw was a silhouette of a gun,
Far away on the other side.
He was shot six times by a man on the run
And she couldn’t find how to push through.
