A remote medieval church in Shropshire is today's Secret Britain find.
‘From Clee to Heaven the beacon burns,’ wrote A. E. Housman in A Shropshire Lad — he could easily have been thinking of tiny Heath Chapel.
High up and isolated in the Clee Hills — which Shropshireites claim to be the highest land eastwards until the Urals in Russia — it’s all that remains of a medieval village and has barely changed since it was built by the Normans.
Faded traces of ancient images and texts can be seen on the walls; if you ignore the wooden pews, you’re transported back to the 12th century, a feeling enhanced by how difficult the chapel is to find.
