Stiperstones The Devils Chair

Posted by
P J W Miller (Chase Terrace, United Kingdom) on 14 September 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The Stiperstones is a very distinctive hill in the county of Shropshire, England. It is a quartzite ridge formed some 480 Million years ago. During the last Ice Age the summit stood out above the glaciers and was subject to constant freezing and thawing which shattered the quartzite into a mass of jumbled scree surrounding several residual rocky tors. At 536 metres above sea level it is the second highest hill in the county, surpassed only by Brown Clee Hill (546 m). Stiperstones' five-mile (8 km) long summit ridge is crowned by several rugged, jagged outcrops of rock silouetted against the sky.

Your honest opinion is welcomed thank you and in return you shall have mine.

Nicely done PJ. It looks as though you have given the rocks a good scrubbing.
