Abberley Hill, Bell Tower and Woodbury Hill from Clee Hill Common
Abberley Hill, Bell Tower and Woodbury Hill from Clee Hill Common
A familiar and indeed famous landmark and profile in these parts; the shapely ridge of Abberley Hill on the left and the Victorian bell tower in the centre, with the old Iron Age hillfort of Woodbury Hill on the right, also known as Owain's Camp.

Site of 'the battle that never was' in the summer of 1405 when the army of Henry IV faced down the army of French and Welsh - neither willing to yeild their advantageous hilltops. They jousted, champions fought, skirmishes and sallies failed to provoke a set-piece battle and after eight days of stalemate both armies withdrew. Some say the English withdrew first, some that the Welsh and French slunk away under cover of night. All that is certain is that neither side took unnecessary risks and cancelled each other out.
