The hills that lie either side of the lower river Severn between Bridgnorth and Gloucester, none above 1,800 feet (549m) high, are a familiar sight to all who live or work in the area. This book celebrates the beauty of those hills and reveals some of their unique features, attractions and hidden secrets, in nearly 180 pages of colour photography, taken in all seasons. The text tells something of the history and folklore of each one; mining and quarrying on Titterstone Clee Hill, villages abandoned on Brown Clee Hill during medieval times, a battle that never was on the Abberley Hills, the village that was transformed almost overnight by the purity of its spring water into a popular spa town – Great Malvern, Winchcombe at the foot of Langley Hill, once a royal town in a lost county where Saxon kings had a mint and buried their dead in a mausoleum. Iron Age hillforts, tollhouses and milestones from the days of turnpike roads, a rebuilt railway line with steam trains, and a motor sport hill climb, all are to be found within the pages of this book.
