Ludlow Millennium Green & The Mill On The Green

Millennium Green

Ludlow Millennium Green situated by the River Teme and Dinham Bridge, is a popular destination for locals and visitors, it is one of the few areas of the river that can be freely and easily accessed.

It is well worth a visit to just sit and relax and feed the ever hungry ducks swimming by. Or even to have a dip in the River Teme. A large green open space is ideal for picnics or soaking up some sun. The Millennium Green is in a beautiful location underneath the cliff that Ludlow Castle's imposing ruins sit upon.


The Mill on the Green

Millennium Green

Formerly the site of an old water powered corn mill (records date this back to 1332), then an iron and brass foundry before becoming the new Ludlow Electric Light Company in the early 20th century. When these activities came to end the area and the building fell into disuse.

The area later became Ludlow Swimming Baths, with the mill building being the changing rooms. When a new leisure centre and swimming pool was built at the other end of the town in the late 1990's a Trust was formed to take over the site to prevent it falling in to the hands of property developers.

Millennium Green

The old swimming baths were demolished, the Millennium Green formed, and the old mill building renovated in to what exists today. The mill houses the Green Cafe (serving hot and cold drinks, ice creams and snacks) and a workshop and meeting room. A hydro-electric waterwheel, which can be viewed free by the public, generates a portion of the power used by the mill building.

Ludlow Millennium Green is owned by Dinham Millennium Green Trust, which was formed just before the millennium to preserve and maintain this lovely spot for future generations. The site is a designated area of SSSI and is in a conservation area.


The Linney

The Linney Riverside Park is a few hundred metres away from the Millennium Green. This large, open space offers parking, toilets, picnic benches as well as a modern well equipped childrens's play area.

There is also a canoe landing stage for access to the River Teme.
