Looking out over The Peak District
The Cat and Fiddle Inn, second highest inn in England, lends it's name to the A537 which passes of the hills separating the Peak District’s "Derbyshire Dales" from Staffordshire and the Cheshire Plain to the west.
You can start at either Macclesfield (A537) or Buxton (A54), either way will give you the chance to run the infamous Cat and Fiddle Route.
The A537 is known as one of the most dangerous roads in the area, but if taken at a steady, safe pace, this road gives all you would expect from a race track, but with the spectacular views to take in at the top.
The Cat caters for all visitors, whether out with the family in the lounge bar and restaurant or in the snug Moorland bar with your outdoor clothing and footwear in the snug Moorland bar.
Too my dismay, after a recent visit the local authority have installed Average Speed Cameras around these roads, "It's 50 for a Reason!" is the message you get on entering route.
