606 Tegg's Nose from Langley

Going sledging is great fun, but often there's a forbidding sign "NO SLEDGING!" So next time you must try Tegg's Nose where the sledging field is a children's favourite. But who was Tegg? Man or sheep is the answer, for Tegge was a Norse settler, while teg is the name for a young sheep.
