Teggs Nose Country Park Wall

This civic award winning project was commissioned by Cheshire County Council as a protective wall-sculpture around the exposed picnic area near the car park.

The viewer below has a panoramic composite image of the wall. Use your mouse or the controls and navigator window to zoom or pan the image.

The design came from the folds in the hills across the valley above Trentabank resevoir. 100 tons of stone were used from Kerridge quarry, it took two weeks to build working with Robert (Red) Sharpley and his team of wallers.

The curved wall-end was inspired by rams' horns in the surrounding fields.

Middlewood Way MilePosts

Macclesfield Borough Council commissioned Jeff to create six way-markers for the Middlewood Way recreational trail that runs from Macclesfield to Marple on the route of the old railway line that connected the two towns.

MiddlewoodWay

In keeping with its railway heritage, Jeff designed the markers to resemble fragments of steam locomotive driving wheels, with the distances in relief on their rims. These were cast at Leander Architectural in Dove Holes near Buxton, a foundry that specialises in a wide range of products from signs, ornamental posts, to sculpture.

The 'mileposts' have just been given a 'Highly Commended' award by the Macclesfield Civic and Heritage Society, and have been the source of much interest to walkers and cyclists along the trail, soon to be incorporated into Route 55 of the National Cycle Network between the Midlands and the North West.
