Twilight Places...

The sun is setting, its rays of light dance as night draws a black silk cloth over the land. In a few hours again it will rise, in the mean time here are some photos of places that look different as the life giving light dwindles...

Below 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.

The 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.

After 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.
