Tips

  • Barney

    Three Shires Head is the Grade II listed stream bridge (or waterfall, accounts differ) which marks the intersection of three counties; Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.

    The run around cut-thorn hill to here is an entertaining blast, too; not too techy but lots of fun, and it finishes here - one of the best picnic spots for miles.

    Enjoy this place for a wild swim, with clear plunge pools and waterfalls here in the River Dane.

    This is an entertaining little stop off and good for a cool down on a hot day! If you are on a MTB, the way down (either direction) is a lot of fun - a bit rocky in places - but the climbs out can be a bit awkward - only one in our group made it all the way without a push in places.

    Give way to walkers, all four paths are very rough & rocky. Given the chance the terrain will eat your derailleur for breakfast!😳🚵‍♂️
