Ludlow Palmers
helping to conserve the fabric and treasures of St Laurence's
Theophilus Salwey

The monument to Theophilus Salwey is situated on the north side of the Chancel. It was designed by Robert Taylor, a prominent London architect of the time, in the Roccoco style, with much imagery reflective of the 'Age of Enlightenment'.

The Salweys were politically and commercially active in the C17 and had established major houses near Ludlow at first Haye Park and later Moor Park at Overton.

Sir Robert Taylor (he was knighted in 1783) was Architect of the 'King's Works' and was responsible in private practice for many major projects across southern England and Wales.
