Notes:

Late Norman also is the very curious round chapel of St. Mary Magdalen, which stands in the middle of the ward, and displays a particularly fine entrance door with zig-zag moulding, and another arch opening into the place where the now-vanished chancel stood. The interior, now [1926] open to the sky, was once very elaborately decorated with woodwork of armorial designs, which was standing perfect in the late eighteenth century. (p. 139)

The zig-zag decoration on the arch is very characteristic of late Norman architecture, some 900 years ago.

There is an official Ludlow Castle Website too.
