Summary of teaching and research activities on the Hilton experimental site, East Shropshire, 1976-2010
Authors:

Abstract:
The Hilton Experimental Site is used for a range of studies on soil erosion and conservation and for studies on water, sediment and solute dynamics within the 40 km2 Claverley Brook Catchment. The site is located 15 km west of Wolverhampton and 8 km east of Bridgnorth at 52o33’05.7”N, 2o19’18.3”W (U.K. National Grid Reference SO778952). It covers 0.52 hectares (5,214 m2) and has an upper elevation of 67.46 metres O.D.. The soil is a loamy sand (Psammept) of the Bridgnorth series. The site was established in 1976 and possesses a meteorological station, 21 runoff plots and soil moisture measuring equipment, including lysimeters. Stream monitoring equipment includes an Ott stage recorder at a rated section, an automatic water sampler and bedload traps. The Hilton Site supports undergraduate, postgraduate and staff research programmes.
