Rather interesting Ludlow facts
Did you know that Henry VIII 's elder brother Prince Arthur has his heart buried in a silver casket beneath the chancel of St Lawrence’s Church in Ludlow? The rest of him is buried in some style at Worcester Cathedral . Arthur was travelling with his new wife, Catherine of Aragon , to Wales when he fell ill – possibly the terminal stages of TB – in Ludlow. ‘Heart’ is by the way a nicer way of saying ‘insides’ – the stuff removed when he was embalmed.
