The Black Friars

The black friars were so called due to interest in the black arts, they still practiced the word of God in most respects.....

The Monastery was close to St. Leonard's Church. (Corve Street, Ludlow) There isn't much left of the Monastery apart from a small unmarked burial ground. Reports from the history of the area say that a Well was found, in the last decade or so...

At the bottom of this Well were a pair of skeletal feet there origin are unknown, but wailing is said to be heard in the vicinity of the Well as if the owner is searching for them...

The Monks were deeply into there own beliefs but also had a strong teaching of far eastern hand to hand combat. The stave was there choice of weapon, made from the heart of the sacred yew tree and each end covered in Gold (they had no need for money as the gifts from travels kept them satisfied in there humble existence.)

Being the Black Friars

"These monks were very hard to play they were for the most part, a silent order (which for a speaking part can be difficult!!) but when they did speak the level of malace has to come across. They also play a important part of Ludlows history so we have to be accurrate in the Costume.

The looks around town are showstoppers, every time people see us as the friers, they now we are the ghost walk no shadow of a doubt.

The costumes cover everything and you feel very enclosed shut off, from the outside world."

As spoken by Leon & Stuart who portray the The Black Friars.
