A day at the ludlow food festival in pictures.

I loved watching the traditionally made cider in the castle grounds.

In the background you can see the generator feeding the apple mulcher. The mulch is then placed on cheesecloth and drained. The juice is collected and left to ferment.

The mulch is put into cheese cloth bags and pressed by the hand wound press

The whole process is shown here, the loading, mulching and pressing.

Inside the castle grounds.

The entrance to Ludlow Castle for the food festival. The castle was built in the 11th century - amazing how it's still functional a thousand years later.
