Bodenhams is a family run business located at the heart of Ludlow in Shropshire. It has been trading from a 600 year old timbered building since 1860 and is one of the oldest stores in Britain. We get many people commenting on us being a mini Liberty's of London, which we don't think of as being a bad thing!
Because of the age of the building we have many vintage features which make the building have a homely feel. People often comment on the quirky rooms and how the building is like Aladdin's cave. We believe we sell something for everyone from toiletries to crockery, and of course clothing!
Even though the building has recently been updated, we have kept as many features of the old fashioned building as possible, for example in the men’s fitting room you will find an old bread oven, which was found while tearing out the old fixtures and fittings. In the ladies you will old wood paneling and a feature wall which shows about 7 layers of wallpaper from years gone by. We like to think these kinds of features make us unique!
