Clee Hill Partnership

The Clee Hill Partnership was formed in March 2011, and aims to bring together relevant partners to work together for the sustainable natural, cultural and economic future of Titterstone Clee Hill and Clee Hill Common. The Partnership came out of a well attended seminar in February 2011 organised by the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, at which agreement was reached that better communication between relevant parties would help address some of the issues facing the area. The idea of a Partnership had also been promoted by members of the Titterstone Clee Heritage Trust.

Clee Hill has a rich landscape, with Shropshire’s largest hillfort (thought to be Bronze Age) and remains of coal mining and basalt quarrying, as well as valuable upland wildlife habitats such as heather moorland and block scree. The area also supports livelihoods and communities, and the Partnership seeks to balance views and respect the rights of commoners and private landowners. Current discussions are focusing on the potential of joint project working around conservation, industrial and other heritage, and visitor enjoyment.

The Clee Hill Partnership has begun the process of putting a substantial bid in to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to enhance the natural and cultural heritage of the hill – for locals and visitors alike.
