One of the great advantages of the Millennium Green is that it permits free and unencumbered access to large areas of the river frontage. Though Dinham is not as rich in fish as it used to be, it still supports good numbers of Grayling below the weir, and good numbers of coarse fish. However, the outstanding 'fishy' feature is the October/November run of salmon seen leaping Castle Weir to reach upstream spawning grounds. On November 7th 2009 well over one hundred people gathered to view the spectacle. (Why not make a diary date now? Fish may normally be seen around this date).

Ludlow and the Teme Gorge through Dinham and Ludford is a classic place of world-renown in the field of geology. Rocks of the Silurian series were first classified here by Sir Roderick Murchison in the 1830s. We are indebted to the late David Lloyd MBE for permission, “to use what you wish from any of my books.” David, a former Mayor of Ludlow and a prolific author on local history, formally opened our newly excavated Mill Chamber back in 2002. A tree was planted in his memory on the Millennium Green in November 2009. Information regarding geology and many other subjects is drawn from his 1999 publication “The Concise History of Ludlow.” We also acknowledge the kind consent of the publisher, Merlin Unwin of Ludlow. David was thrilled that the Mill on the Green would emphasise the historic role of water power in Ludlow’s growth and prosperity. Press Release: Tree Planted in Rememberance of David Lloyd.
