Three Shires Head

UK»England»Cheshire»Three Shires Head

Three Shires Head is the meeting point of the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire. The River Dane rises about two miles above and runs in a steep sided valley at this point. The area is between 360 and 450 metres above sea level and is typical of the Cheshire uplands. The heather, bracken, and purple moorgrass are interspersed with rocky outcrops while the surrounding pasture lands are closely grazed by flocks of sheep. A few stunted trees are to be found on the hillsides and a small area of mixed woodland lie near the two pack horse bridges.
