Some people call this slope on the edge of the Peak District, the ‘Cheshire Matterhorn’.

Wildboarclough is dominated by the awesome presence of Shutlingsloe that stands at 506 metres high, the third highest point in Cheshire behind Shining Tor and Whetstone Ridge.

The area around Shutlingsloe is a popular walking destination and if you are brave enough to ascent to the summit, you are rewarded with fine views of Cheshire, the Peak District and nearby Tegg’s Nose Country Park.

If you fancy a nice place to reward yourself with a pint or a bite to eat, the nearby Leather’s Smithy and Crag Inn pubs are well worth a visit.

Why don’t you upload your images of Shutlingsloe to the reader photo gallery? Or you can also add your Peak District photos.
