Titterstone Clee Hill Heritage Trust
www.thecleehilltrust.co.uk
The Trust is working to conserve and enhance; and make better known the unique nature of Titterstone Clee Hill, Shropshire. They are also working towards setting up a visitors/education centre.

In case you are wondering why a group in Shropshire should be included on a website in Bristol - we were amazed to find out from the group that they have two woodlands in their area - one named Knowle Wood - and the other Novers Wood; and an area called The Novers. They were trying to find out where the name Novers comes from - the NSI didn't know, so if any one knows, please contact both organisations.
