Titterstone Clee Hill and Brown Clee Hill are in the south of Shropshire. They are both within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are linked together by a ridge between them and are both interesting in their own right.

Brown Clee is the highest hill in Shropshire at 540 metres (1,770 feet) above sea level. Titterstone Clee Hill is the third highest hill in Shropshire. It rises to 533 metres(1,749 feet) above sea level. Both are classifyed as Marilyns (see blog on hillbagging).

Popular with walkers, and on clear days there are extensive, beautiful views over many other counties and from Titterstone Clee these extend into Wales.

Quarrying has had a huge effect on both hills and there is still an open quarry on Titterstone Clee.

Nordy Bank Hill Fort is the only intact hill fort on Brown Clee. Abdon Burf And Clee Burf and the Hill Fort on Titterstone Clee Hill have been largely damaged due to the quarrying activities.

Both hills now have radar arrays on their summits. Titterstone Clee Hills is refered to as the Golf Ball, (see below photograph) as that is what it looks like. There is also Met Office sensors as well.

There is lots to see  which gives a link to how humans have had their effect on Brown Clee and Titterstone Clee Hill.
