606 Tegg's Nose from Langley

Going sledging is great fun, but often there's a forbidding sign "NO SLEDGING!" So next time you must try Tegg's Nose where the sledging field is a children's favourite. But who was Tegg? Man or sheep is the answer, for Tegge was a Norse settler, while teg is the name for a young sheep. Many people approach from the car park at the top, but climbing Tegg's Nose from Langley is quite a challenge, for the path sets off very steeply as if wanting to put you off. But the ascent is well worth the effort for every time you stop to get your breath back the view expands, eventually stretching over most of Cheshire.
