The Archdeacon of Ludlow is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Hereford. Prior to 1876 the post was known by its previous title of Archdeacon of Shropshire.

The Archdeacon is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [1] within the six area deaneries: Bridgnorth, Clun Forest, Condover, Ludlow, Pontesbury and Telford Severn Gorge.

The post is currently held by the Rt. Revd. Alistair Magowan, who is also Bishop of Ludlow. His two predecessors as Archdeacon of Ludlow were also Bishops of Ludlow.
