A giant scarf is being draped across one of Shropshire's highest hills on the line of an ancient boundary wall.

The scarf, which has been knitted by volunteers, is 1749ft (533m) long, the same height as Titterstone Clee hill.

The hill was the site of intense quarrying in the early 20th Century employing about 2,000 quarrymen.

Suzanne Thomas, who has co-ordinated the knitting, said she wanted to honour the people who built the wall and the women who lived and worked in the area.

The giant scarf will go on display at Ludlow Library next month and then be turned into blankets which will be given to hospices and shelters for homeless people.
