Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Preparing for the walk at Tegg's Nose car park . . .
where Eric and I check out the information . . .
about the views . . .
including some very white fields
Tegg's Nose quarry face is the best place to see the rock which is millstone grit, a type of sandstone that is particularly durable. At one time, 70% of the streets of Macclesfield were paved with stone from Tegg’s Nose.
Eric and Phil check out the machinery . . .
still in evidence
A stepped path leads us down towards the reservoirs
A muddy track leads into the woodland . . .
where we find a good spot for elevenses
There are many opportunities . . .
for photos . . .
of snow laden trees . . .
and wintery scenes
Phil captures me emerging from the woods . . .
where he likens the scene to emerging from the wardrobe . . .
into the land of Narnia . . .
with views almost in monochrome
Still in Narnia!
A ruin provides our lunch spot
Phil checks out . . .
an impressively weathered tree trunk
One of the 'muddier' sections!!!
