lol Gaynor, probably a bit misleading as you start down near Macclesfield Forest and slowly work your way gradually uphill until you get to the last bit which is a bit more of a killer lol
This is part of the path between Macc.forest and Shutlingsloe (looking back towards Macclesfield forest)
and the last bit which unfortunately was a very windy day and I virtually ended up on all fours when I finally got to the top for fear of being blown right orfff the top LOL
(looking towards Shutlingsloe) you can see the steep bit at the end - got palpitations just looking at it now LOL
and view from top although I only took two pics as I had to hold on to the trig point !
and this is a pic from top of "the Cloud" Bosley where you can see right across Cheshire and towards Staffs in the other direction.
and Tegg's Nose near Macc.forest - that day was over 8 miles with the hill at the end !

Shuttlingsloe, the Peak Districts Matterhorn...
You certainly had a good days walking, and among some lovely scenery, which the River Dove, though I've always avoided Dove Dale, it gets too busy.
Another lovely walk from around that way is Beresford and Wolfscote Dales, which I've enjoyed walking through in the past.
