Brown Clee Hill
Brown Clee Hill is the highest hill in the rural English county of Shropshire. At 540 metres above sea level it is one of the Clee Hills, and lies in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The highest peak of the hill is Abdon Burf, at 540 metres high with Clee Burf at 510m. It is not only the highest point in Shropshire but is also the highest point anywhere in the Heart of England. There are a number of hill forts on Brown Clee Hill with Nordy Bank being the last intact survivor of three Iron Age hill forts. There used to be hill forts at Abdon Burf and Clee Burf, but they have been largely lost to quarrying activity. Today the Abdon Burf is occupied by radio masts.
