Shutlingsloe

Shutlingsloe hill near Wildboarclough is 506 meters high. It has a very distinctive profile and is sometimes called "the Matterhorn of Cheshire" (a bit of an exaggeration!) The name comes from the Old English "Scytels Hlaw" meaning Scytel's Hill. Many of the hills in the Peak District are called "lows" from the OE word hlaw.
