Three Shires Head

Three Shires Head is the meeting point of three counties: Cheshire is to the left, Derbyshire in the centre, and Staffordshire on the right; their boundaries are marked by the River Dane and a smaller tributary, Backclough Brook, which joins it just below Panniers Pool. The latter rises in an alum spring which gives it a slightly milky colour. As the name ‘Panniers Pool’ suggests, it was a crossing point of several packhorse routes. The larger bridge, to the left, is called Panniers Pool Bridge.
