Views from Titterstone Clee Hill, Ludlow, Shropshire. Location map
 
  Ludlow from the top of Titterstone Clee Hill, Shropshire, England   Ludlow from the top of  Titterstone Clee Hill.

This hill is about 5 miles, as the crow flies, to the north-east of Ludlow and is a little over 1700 feet high. A rather stiff climb you think? Not a bit - it is possible to cheat which we did. There is a narrow little road which goes almost to the top and there is a large area in which to park your car. The walk from there is not difficult at all.

The views are pretty amazing all round. There was a certain amount of heat haze but if you look carefully below the double humped hill in the centre of the picture you will see a collection of buildings which is Ludlow.

The rocks in the foreground are Dolerite which is an igneous (volcanic) rock. This rock has been quarried in the past and, in medieval times, coal was also mined here. The rest of the hill is made of Devonian Old Red Sandstone overlain by Carboniferous sandstone and limestone.
