Shropshire has an odd name for its alleys or passageways, particularly those that pass through a building from one street to another – shuts – derived from shoots as in “shoots through”. In Ludlow there are a few of these as well as several cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards which date from the medieval period.
This post is a contribution to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Have you got a post you wrote in the past on this particular day? The world might be glad to see it – either for the first time – or again if they’re long-time loyal readers.

Loved it Jude 🙂
It’s interesting to see what you posted in the past and since we are not travelling anywhere it is an excuse to revisit places.
I’m doing some photo file tidying so virtual travelling here too
Good thinking, and revisiting can come up with some surprises
And now you’ve created a temporal shut from 2014 to 2021.
Good old Ludlow. It did provide you with some lovely images over the years.
Best wishes, Pete. x
It certainly did and I do miss the convenience of being in town.
I quite enjoy re-blogging, particularly from the early days when I had few readers. I somehow haven’t got round to it these last few Fridays (Christmas Day. NY Day. No excuse today, but still …). I’d never heard of shuts before. How interesting. We’re all about the ginnels and the snickets up here as you know.
It’s tricky finding the exact date, but fun looking through the older posts. And I do have three blogs to choose from!
Three? That’s just plain greedy! I’m not sure if I know your third one?
A flower blog and gardens, but I haven’t posted since 2019. One day hopefully I will visit new gardens.
Thanks for sharing…that is really neat!
Just like our Wynds in Richmond and thereabouts. They’re a nice feature 🙂 🙂
I thought wynds were Scottish.
Share and share alike. 🤣💕
We’ve been watching “The Great British Baking Show” and even though I’ve read lots and lots of British novels, the different words you use that aren’t used in the US continually amazes and amuses me. I like the idea of “Flashback Friday” and maybe I’ll use that sometimes instead of “Friday flowers”, although I could do both at the same time as well.
It’s a good way to look back at things we’ve written.
We had a very quick one day visit to Shrewsbury in 1999 and ever since, it’s been on my must return to list. I’d love to spend time exploring Shropshire thoroughly.
It’s a very rural county with some lovely spots.
It’s one of those things that pop up on social media from time to time in the “what do you call this?” type of post. Amazing regional variations. I’m familiar with snickets and ginnels from my Yorkshire days and still use the former. Can’t think what I called them before. Cuts I think.
I get that on Google Photos. Last year I was taking photos of the harbour in Hayle!
It’s always good to have another glimpse of Shropshire. My first thought was that we would call them backs round here, but on further thought, that might not be exactly the same thing.
Backs? Is that the lane running behind a row of terrace houses?
Yes, but there is some leeway when the backs extend out sideways mid row as they do in town.
