I picked Paul up at 10:00 and headed off along the M54 for a bagging session in the Welsh borders. The intention was to park between Corndon Hill and Heath Mynd, and knock the two off, before proceeding to Long Mountain. We actually parked above the Hollies, and set off up Heath Mynd, which was by far the best Hill of the day, almost Berwynesque. We then returned to the car and drove over to Corndon Hill.
For Corndon Hill we parked at the car park at the nature reserve by Hurdley. We had tried to drive up the track as far as Cowlton, but could not find adequate room to park. We walked back along this track through Cowlton and along the open hillside to Corndon Hill. We walked past the forest and ascended along the far side of the trees, visited the summit. We had a little wander around on the plateau before heading back down alongside the other side of the plantation.
Titterstone Clee Hill is actually worse than Brown Clee Hill, in fact it actually made Brown Clee look inviting. We probably only parked about 50m of ascent from the summit, which I would normally have a huge ethical problem with ticking. However, as this is the worst hill that I have ever had the misfortune to set foot on, I will not be going back to re-tick it – I would rather spend the weekend pulling my teeth out with rusty plyers!
