Brown Clee Hill, at 540 m (1,772 ft) tall, is the highest point in Shropshire. It is located in the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hill is made up of two peaks Abdon Burf and Clee Burf, with the highest being Abdon Burf. Much of the hill is private land: the eastern side is owned by Viscount Boyne while much of the western fringes by private landowners. Large coniferous plants cover the slopes.
During World War Two, this hill was the site of numerous aircraft accidents for both allied and German forces. The summit also hosts a microwave relay station. A toposcope can be found at the top too and highlights various, notable landmarks nearby.
