The Virgin in the Ice

Cadfael's sixth adventure The Virgin in the Ice opens with the fall of Worcester into the hands of a besieging army in 1139. The Chronicle of John of Worcester provides this contemporary account.(photo from geograph by Richard Webb used under Creative Commons 2.0 licence

Much of the action of the story takes place on and around Titterstone Clee. The BBC provides a panorama from the top of Titterstone Clee, though I don't think they had the radar station there in Cadfael's day! The Been There Done That site has some still pictures, while the map below shows the location (the blue marker).
