The Feathers Hotel was built in 1619 and its World famous timber facade was adorned with Ostrich feathers which represented the Royalist support of the town for the Prince of Wales who later became Charles I. During the English Civil War the town remained loyal to the King and it is thought that Royalist Soldiers lodged at The Feathers during this time. The oldest part of the Feathers, including the world-famous timber facade, was built in 1619 (during the reign of King James I) by Rees Jones, a successful attorney in the town, who had frequently appeared before the Council of the Marches, which from 1536 until 1689 was situated in Ludlow, making the town in effect the capital of Wales.
