Titterstone Clee Hill, Shropshire
Titterstone Clee Hill, Shropshire
The Clee Hills in southern Shropshire were a prolific source of iron, copper and limestone and the Ludlow & Clee Hill Railway was built to provide an outlet for large quarries east of Ludlow. A narrow gauge incline serving Titterstone Quarries also connected with this line at Bitterley and climbed NE for 1 miles to the incline top 1500ft asl on Titterstone Clee Hill where sidings fanned out to the crushing plant and quarry faces. The photo shows the incline passing over a long distance path 'The Shropshire Way.'
