Ludlow Castle there is a road, if you follow this road it will lead
you after many hours to the coast. (the welsh coast) This might
have no consequence, but Ludlows postion also ment it was one of
the first stopping points for wreckers to sell there stolen cargo.
term wreckers comes from the men and women that placed lights on
the coastline at night. This was to trick the cargo sailing ships
to think the lights were a port, and come in to safety. Like moths
to a flame the ships would come in straight onto the rocks and not
the port. If the tide was right all the passengers and crew drowned,
if it was wrong however the wreckers had to drown or kill the hapless
passengers that made it to the shore.
the boat was wrecked the cargo was stolen and taken by road to be
sold. Ludlow was the first town in England and so in the dead of
night this blood soaked cargo was sold to the unwitty.
