Clee Hill
Clee Hill
Viewed from Pinnacle Hill on the Malvern Hills.
Several radar domes and towers operate on the summit of the hill.
The largest radome is part of the National Air Traffic Services (NATS) radar network and monitors all aircraft within a 100-mile radius.
The smaller dome is a Met Office weather radar used to produce the rain maps we see on the television forecasts.
