Lud's Church is a stunning nature feature, filled with fascinating history, and makes you feel like you've suddenly transported to a jungle ravine. It can be tricky to find and easy to miss, so keep an eye on the signposted signs!
Thought to be created when the Devil scrapped back his finger on his way back to hell (so the legends say!), Lud's Church is a geological adventure perfect for all ages and a truly breath-taking hidden gem.
Even if you have researched this place, when you actually see it for yourself it really is something else. The photos and videos can't give it justice!
First time visiting and already making plans to return. Wow. Just wow. The photos don’t do it justice. – Google Review
It's safe for kids when accompanied by an adult and the ups and downs of the muddy paths can be enjoyed whilst making your way to Gradbach Woods.
