We recently took a day out to visit the RADAR station atop the the Clee Hills – Titterstone Clee Hill.
Scouting locations for photoshoots has become a bit of a hobby, each weekend it seems a new location gets mentioned, Clee Hill has been on the list for some time.

Quarries and mines flooded after laying waste for a hundred years, this place has got it all. It’s beautiful, unearthly and scary all at the same time… perfect for a shoot with the new range in a few weeks.
Whilst at the summit we started to compile two lists… 1, how and why the place exists. 2, how to cope when you’re presented with 4 seasons in 30 minutes…
Wikipedia seems to be rather informative about the RADARS so here’s the hastily collated Cora + Spink guide to coping with the English great outdoors whilst looking good.

- At this point we got slightly distracted by chasing a sheep… I think you get the picture. Be safe outdoors. Enjoy the pictures.
