Climbing Clee hill - with Ten Ball Backpack

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.

  3. Bag – when exploring the great outdoors you might need a couple of bags – your pockets are only so big, so choose a few from our range…
  4. At this point we got slightly distracted by chasing a sheep… I think you get the picture. Be safe outdoors. Enjoy the pictures.
