Clee Hills: August 2016

Among Shropshire’s Clee Hills is an abandoned quarry that is now home to grazing sheep and a large amount of graffiti.

It is quite an emotive sight – the rolling hills in contrast with the harsh, defaced ruin.

Graffiti has found its way onto almost every inch of bare wall. The sheep seem to have fallen victim to the spray can too, marked with a vivid blue on their backs, but I am sure that is courtesy of the farmer.

The quarry is an excellent reminder of man’s impact on the natural world and how even after everyone involved has moved on, the legacy of the impact lives on.
