Stiperstones Heather, Shropshire, England by Giles Clare

Currently unavailable for purchase

Stiperstones Heather, Shropshire, England by 

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.

    Beautiful shot Giles, now I know what they mean when they talk about “the heather”.

  • Yes, Garth, we went up there quite by chance at exactly the right time of year (a couple of days ago). Well worth the trip!
