Titterstone Clee Hill

UK»England»Shropshire»Titterstone Clee Hill

Titterstone Clee Hill: Titterstone Clee is the third highest hill in Shropshire and much of the higher part of the hill is common land, used for the grazing of sheep, air traffic control services and working or disused quarries. Also, many derelict quarry buildings are scattered over the hill, now used only by sheep sheltering from the worst of weather. Combined, these give the summit of the hill an eerie, other worldly feel.The summit of Titterstone Clee is bleak, treeless and shaped by decades of quarrying. Many of the structures still remain, and lend to the ghostly atmosphere of the hill top, especially during the prolonged winter fogs that descend over the hills.

Directions

Car

The A4117 between Cleobury Mortimer and Ludlow runs along the southern slope of Titterstone Clee, and rises to around 380 metres above sea level at its highest point on Clee Hill Common. Because of this, the road is often affected by snow in winter. The small village of Cleehill lies on this road as it crosses the hill.
