Ludchurch is a natural rift which was probably caused by a land slip many thousands of years ago it is about two hundred yards in length and varys in width from about twelve to fifty feet. It is located on the Staffordshire/Cheshire border on the far side of the rocky escarpment known as the Roaches.
Ludchurch is rich with many legends, some of which can be found on this site. I have visited Ludchurch many times usually by walking from Gradbach Mill following the footpath which runs next to the river Dane, which then passes over Casters bridge before climbing up through the Back forest where Ludchurch can be found. Many times I have noticed that the bird song seems to disappear the nearer you get to Ludchurch, also I have noticed a lack of animal life near this strange area.
I recommend that you visit this unique site as words cannot really capture the atmosphere of this unusual place
