Covid-19

Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

Shutlingsloe isn’t the highest or hardest summit but is one that most closely resembles a child’s drawing of a mountain. At 506m it also one of the highest points in Cheshire only exceeded by hills to its east, Shining Tor etc. We reach this peak from Teggs Nose Country Park by a mix of farm and forest tracks, field paths, moorland and rocky peaks. Skirting Macclesfield Forest we reach moorland with gritstone flags and wooden duckboards. A final step staircase leads us to the summit of Shutlingsloe (506m) with a trig point as well as a view indicator.

moorland

After a steep descent past rocky outcrops the path levels out and leads us to Wildboarclough. From here we follow along Clough Brook crossing farmland to reach the Gritstone Trail which leads us to Teggs Nose and Bottoms reservoirs. From here through Teggsnose Wood we start the steep ascent to reach Teggs Nose (380m) with its interesting quarry remains and fine views. From the summit we have a short walk along the Gritstone Trail back to the carpark.
