The village of Wildboarclough is located off the A54, Buxton to Congleton road, the weather today is mild with sunshine and heavy rain showers. Wildboarclough is famous as the place where the last Wild Boar in England was killed. Today we park up in the village and walk along the public footpath signposted to the well known Cat and Fiddle Inn, and then bear right heading along the route towards Three Shires Head, where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet.
|From the car park we first walk along the road, then left through a gate. This takes us along the path with a stream running alongside. The route is all uphill and with the recent heavy rain showers the path itself resembles a stream.|
|Near to the point where the path splits there is a small waterfall. As we head right here we cross the stream at the top of the waterfall, good boots are needed!|
|There are views towards the summit of Shutlingsloe, otherwise known as the 'Cheshire Matterhorn' due to its pointed shape.|
