Walking from Tegg’s Nose Country Park we climb Tegg’s Nose (1214ft/370m), Shining Tor (1835ft/559m) and Shutlingsloe (1660ft/506m). En route, we take in Macclesfield Forest, Lamaload Reservoir and the Cat and Fiddle Distillery. We traverse stretches of high moorland and rocky outcrops, with terrific views over the Cheshire plains. Lower down, the route passes through woodland and along reservoir tracks – it’s a challenge walk with variety and beauty!

Respect, Protect and Enjoy!
We all want to respect, protect and enjoy the fragile upland environments where we walk, so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come. Following The Countryside Code really helps…
- Be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
- Leave gates and property as you find them
- Do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
- Be nice, say hello, share the space
- Follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available
- Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
- Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
- Always keep dogs under control and in sight
- Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
- Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
- Check your route and local conditions
- Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
- Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory
