Three Shires Head Waterfall.

Three Shires Head is the point on Axe Edge Moor where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet, at UK grid reference SK010686, or 53°13′N 1°59′W / 53.217°N 1.983°W / 53.217; -1.983. 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, on the higher regions of Axe Edge Moor. From Cheeks Hill the border runs south then east to the head of the River Dove. The main landmark is an ancient packhorse bridge.
