An iconic SOTA pub - the legendary Cat & Fiddle has been closed since 2015 - but is set to reopen!
The famous pub between Macclesfield and Buxton sits right by the usual parking spot for Shining Tor G/SP-004, one of SOTA’s most activated summits, and has been the scene of many post-activation drinks and meet-ups for SOTA ops.
The Forest Gin distillery needs bigger premises and wishes to open the pub, with cafe, distillery, tours, shop etc. And Robinsons of Stockport have agreed!
This has got to be the SOTA News of the Year!
