The two smooth humps of Brown Clee Hill dominate the landscape east of Ludlow. With its summit rising to 1,772 ft, Brown Clee is the highest point in Shropshire and was an iron-age settlement, hosting three hillforts. Below Brown Clee, the plan shows another isolated hill fort at Titterstone Clee. At an altitude of 1,750 ft, this fort is one of the highest and largest in Britain.
