Three Shires Head
Three Shires Head

Three Shires Head is the point on Axe Edge Moor where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet.

It is on the River Dane, which marks the Cheshire border in this area. On the east of the river, the border between Staffordshire and Derbyshire runs north-east for about a mile to Cheeks Hill.

The main landmark is a packhorse bridge. The bridge is Grade II-listed, and was probably constructed in the late 18th century.
