Bromfield Parish Council

About Us

                                                      Welcome to the new website for Bromfield Parish Council.

Bromfield is located near the market town of Ludlow.

The village is situated near the confluence of the River Teme & River Onny.. The latter splits the village into two, with the church and many of the older buildings to the west and the recently redeveloped business area to the east  A bridge takes the main road over the river.

The manor of Bromfield, and separately Bromfeld Priory are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Much of the parish, as well as the neighbouring parish of Stanton Lacy, is part of the Earl of Plymouths Oakly Park Estate. Oakly Park is now the Plymouth family seat.

The village church is dedicated to St Mary The Virgin and is a grade I listed building.

Three-quarters of Ludlow Racecourse and the Ludlow Golf Club are located in the parish, to the northeast of the village. 

The village now boasts a post office (open Monday-Friday only),a hotel/restaurant/bar called "The Clive" https://www.theclive.co.uk/, a large local food centre "The Ludlow Food Centre" ,http://www.ludlowfoodcentre.co.uk a smaller restaurant/cafe ("The Farmers Kitchen") and a garden/plant centre. These are all located adjacent to one another in a recently redeveloped business area by the A49 road.

Islabikes are based in the business area; they manufacture specialist bicycles, in particular for children.

National Cycle Network route 44 passes through the village, on its way between Bishop's Castle and Ludlow. It passes under the A49 by a subway, an unusual feature for a village in Shropshire.
