Tegg’s Nose is a hill lying to the east of Macclesfield with an elevation of 380 m (1,250 ft) above sea level. It lies on the western edge of the Peak District and much of it is within the Tegg’s Nose Country Park. Once mined for millstone grit, it is now rich in wildlife with a range of habitats including moorland, meadows, farmland and broadleaved woodland.
It is suitable for a wide variety of activities including walking, fell running, orienteering, cycling and mountain biking, horse riding and rock climbing.
Fishing is possible in Teggsnose and Bottoms Reservoirs, which lie at the base of the hill to the south. The site is criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways and a popular walk is the Tegg’s Nose Trail, a 4 km (2.5 mi) waymarked circular route.
