The Cat & Fiddle Inn

Standing close to the source of the River Goyt, this famous pub (once reputed to be the highest in England, but now designated the second highest!) was on the edge of the Grimshawe’s Errwood Estate. The postcards include many going back to the early 1900s, and provide some fascinating detail. But there is a bit of a mystery over when the pub was extended. As the captions show, it’s not easy trying to work it out. But it’s an interesting challenge!
