The Stiperstones is a distinctive hill in Shropshire, England. During the last Ice Age, glaciers subjected this quartzite ridge to constant freezing and thawing, shattering the rock into a jumble of scree and several residual tors, jagged outcrops of rock silouetted against the sky.
Recently, some remaining plantations have been cleared, restoring the land to heather-based heath. In late summer, a glorious purple heather upland tract covers the summits around the tors.
