556 Tegg's Nose to Kerridge

The Met Office may say Spring starts on March 1st, but snow was still blanketing the countryside as we headed for Tegg's Nose, rising majestically over Macclesfield. The Gritstone Trail then led us over fields sparkling in the sunlight to the long ridge of Kerridge Hill for a glorious winter's day in the hills.
