Liz's Leap up Teggs Nose with Awesome Views

Tegg's Nose Country Park

Thanks Liz Salmon for once again offering to lead this walk.

"Tegg's Nose is a hill east of Macclesfield in Cheshire, England. It has a short ridge with a high point of 380 metres (1246 feet) "

This is a medium fitness walk due to to a slightly steep but achievable ascent with a nice steady pace

Here is a little information about Tegg's Nose Country Park...

"Discover Tegg’s Nose Country Park and experience Cheshire’s wild hill country where rock dominates the landscape. Dry stone walls and sturdy barns add to the dramatic character of the steeply sided valleys while many of the hill tops are pitted with old quarries.

Quarrying was certainly happening at Tegg’s Nose in the 1500’s and continued until 1955. Men blasted, hammered, hacked and chiselled away at the rock in harsh conditions for low wages.

Today nature has softened the scars of industry and there is plenty to see at Tegg’s whatever time of year. You don’t have to go far to enjoy exhilarating views over the Cheshire Plain and on a clear day you can see Liverpool’s cathedrals and Welsh hills beyond.

Why "Tegg’s Nose"? Early maps show the area as Tegge’s Naze. This may have come from Tegge, an early Norse Settler and ‘nose’ meaning a promontory or it may be that the hill originally looked like a sheep or ‘teg’.

Approx 7 miles

Great photo opportunities

Good walking boots essential - sticks may be handy for descent

We walk at a nice steady pace with a break for refreshments so bring a flask/water and a picnic.

The walk begins in the pay and display Tegg's Nose Car Park with an awesome cafe to finish with delightful tea and cake.

(Car Park is £3 and cash required)

More details of the walk to follow.

Why not come along as a first time guest and meet our lovely Ladies
