Plans for St Laurence's church in Ludlow on show

Plans outlining two options to improve a Shropshire church have been unveiled.

St Laurence's has stood in the centre of Ludlow in its present form for 550 years, but a written record of a parish church on the site goes back to 1199.

The first option would keep everything within the church while the second proposal includes an extension.

People can visit an exhibition at the church and give their views before a decision is made on Saturday about which plan should be developed further.

A grant of £2,000 from Ludlow Civic Society has gone towards architectural work.

Project architect James Wade, of Arrol & Snell in Shrewsbury, said: "Our aim is to evolve a design which is worthy of its setting, meets the needs of the church for the future and safeguards its exceptional architectural and historic qualities."
