  G/HSP-023 - Shutlingsloe

Full Screen Map

A nice grassy summit with much more room for antennae than you would think. The VHF take-off is excellent through 360 degrees. A very popular summit with walkers so don`t expect solitude. Shutlingsloe is known locally as "Cheshire's Matterhorn", owing to its distinctive and instantly recognisable peaked profile. It stands proudly between the ancient settlements of Wincle, Wildboaclough and Forest Chapel, and has the distinction of being officially, statistically, the most anagrammable hill name in Great Britain.

Report 1
 SJ983691 - Room for about 10 cars.
 From the parking spot, walk 100m South along the road towards the Crag Inn. Just before the Inn, turn back on yourself and take the steep metalled road up to Shutlingsloe farm. Just before the farm gate the footpath takes a left turn, over a couple of stiles towards the summit. There are two routes to the summit, a path to the left which is shortest but steeper, the path to the right is longer but more gently graded. Car to summit - a lung bursting 25 mins.

Report 2
 SJ 9771 7146 - Park in the car park. Room for several cars. If on weekends you may want to get there early as this is popular walking area
