Winter Walk in the Peak District

With a day to myself last week, I decided to do a hill walk in the Peak District. It was a sunny day and I had googled walks to local waterfalls. The one that took my interest was ‘Three Shires Head’, a 4 1/2 mile mixed terrain walk in between Macclesfield and the Roaches.


On the drive out, there was a beautiful view across to the Cheshire Cloud rocky outcrop.


Setting of walking from Wildboarclough village, the gradual climb through snowy woodland and moor felt like a different world.


Following the river Dane back down into a valley, two tributaries converge at the point where Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire borders meet.


I took a weatherproof camera & lens, tripod and filters, to get some long exposures of the waterfall. A very picturesque scene.


Heading back up across the moors, the snow and ice made it tricky to find the path through. The view across to Shutslingsloe was also the marker back towards the woods and car park. A satisfying walk in the depths of winter.
