Following the course of the Ludlow to Clee Hill railway

This video follows the route of another remarkable Shropshire railway: the line from Ludlow up to the quarries on Titterstone Clee.

Coal mining was resumed up there during the Second World War, which must have meant the line saw more use. It finally closed in 1962.

Legend has it that the people down the hill in Ludlow could not understand the dialect of Clee Hill village, only a few miles away.
