About

At Tegg’s Nose Country Park rock dominates the landscape. Dry stone walls and sturdy barns add to the dramatic character of the steeply sided valleys while many of the hill tops are pitted with old quarries.

Quarrying was certainly happening at Tegg’s Nose in the 1500’s and continued until 1955. Men blasted, hammered, hacked and chiselled away at the rock in harsh conditions for low wages.

Today nature has softened the scars of industry and there is plenty to see at Tegg’s whatever time of year. You don’t have to go far to enjoy exhilarating views over the Cheshire Plain and on a clear day you can see Liverpool’s cathedrals and Welsh hills beyond. Spring and autumn are perfect for walking while sledging is always popular in the winter.

Why Tegg’s Nose? Early maps show the area as Tegge’s Naze. This may have come from Tegge, an early Norse Settler and ‘nose’ meaning a promontory or it may be that the hill originally looked like a sheep or ‘teg’.

Facilities:

Toilets: Toilets are available on site, including an accessible one with RADAR lock access.

Refreshments: Tegg's Nose Tea Room offers hot and cold food, tea, coffee, cakes, ice cream and more - visit www.facebook.com/teggsnosetearoom for details.
