Ludlow Castle is a partly ruined uninhabited medieval building in the town of the same name in the English county of Shropshire. It stands on a high point overlooking the River Teme and in the middle ages it was an important strategic stronghold for control of the Welsh Borders and at times the seat of English government in Wales

The castle was probably founded by Walter de Lacy in the late 11th century. Possession of Ludlow Castle descended through the Lacy family until 1115

In the painting Norman depicts an angry sky over the castle probably reflecting its turbulent history but he still places two young lovers at the entrance to the castle
