Walk: Tegg's Nose to the ridge of white Nancy
Start Point: Tegg's Nose Country Park (parking 2 toilets &
info centre)
Grid Reference: SJ 950 733
Distance: 8.75 miles Ascent: 1,400 feet
Time: 5.25 hrs    
Weather: Weather Cloudy with sunny intervals
Comments: There was 15 on the walk a good turnout considering it was a long journey for some, but everyone really enjoyed it and as most had not walked in that area before it was a nice change from the usual Lake district or Yorkshire walks.
The walk started from Tegg's Nose country park which was previously a site for stone quarrying and there is some restored machinery on show there. We then continued through the Cheshire countryside until we reached the ridge of white Nancy. (white Nancy is a dome shaped folly which is painted white, but is sometimes painted to depict a special event such as the queens Jubilee). We then returned along the ridge and back along the Gritstone trail.
