Lydham is a small village and civil parish in Shropshire, England.

Lydham is situated on the junction of the A488 and the A489 main roads, about 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Bishop's Castle.[2]

There is a market held on Fridays in the village hall. Close by is the small village and separate parish of More.

History[edit]

Two miles to the south-east, in the parish of Lydham, are the fragmentary remains of Lea Castle, adjoining a modern farmhouse at Lower Lea.[3]

Railway[edit]

Lydham was served by the now defunct Bishops Castle Railway which closed in 1935. The station was nearby at Lydham Heath.
