Stop the press! - Traffic cone has gone and the FBM is now covered by a pile of rocks. I spoke to the Landlord he said cone kept blowing away, and then people keep driving into it! so a "cairn" seems to of done the trick - I carefully removed the rock, took my images and re-covered it. FBM is a bit knocked about, great views.

Out on a walk with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - and we stopped her for lunch. So, the opportunity to make a visit was just too good to miss. Exactly as others have described.

Typical Peak District winter's day... horizontal drizzle & 20ft visibility. Easy to find once as is the BM plate on the front wall of pub (G3602). My 200th trig in 2011 but pub was shut so no celebration beer...

Easy to find once you know where it is :-) Found the BM plate on the frontwall of pub first (G3602)

Poor thing. Half buried. But this is an iconic spot. Pity the owners of the pub cant venture out to clean up some of the crap in the car park. Still, I suppose I should be grateful I found it open. Winter hours are a little sparse to say the least.

Easy to find in the car park. Now has a Bank Holiday sign next to it

I looked for this at the start of a walk to Shining Tor and Burbage Edge without success – located it on my return. I’d thought it was in the pub carpark – but it’s on the north side of the pub protected by two traffic cones.

A departure from my usual pillars as not shown on maps, but spotted this on website. Easy find as pictured on West side of pub. Partly buried, but protected by two stout wood blocks and cones. Also flush Bracket on the front of the pub no. G3602? Similarly, I spotted another in Macclesfield at the Puss in Boots pub by the canal no. 2715.

Shame this is not logged, so could only log as could not find But this needs to be notified as this is an ideal half way point for walkers, a well known spot for Bikes and the views are great

Some kind soul has excavated some of the FBM
23rd Jan 2011 10:00 by Crazy
Good long distance views, near view of pub wall and mast less attractive. Nice and easy to find with its guardian cones. A "baby" trig as Shorty called it - luckily Extra Shorty didn't want to know how long it took to grow into the full size one. Beer calling.

Cheshire. It is protected by two cones in the small car park on the western side of the inn. There is no plaque, no plate and no height tag but, unusually for an FBM, there is a flush bracket. The flush bracket is half buried and we did not excavate as it was a dark and windy evening.
8th Oct 2010 19:08 by Lodgebarn
Been passed here so many times - finally realised there was a trig to log. Very dark and windy tonight - GPS was pulling me to the middle of the road!

tried hard to clear the fb but only managed half, came here just 3 weeks back armed with just the information that it's in the pub car park,what i did not allow for was the car park being under several feet of snow.
26th Jul 2009 12:40 by pete37038
just a concrete block now, cant see the FB !
11th Jul 2009 12:20 by Bourne
Parked at the Cat & Fiddle - Mobile Speed camera parked near the Pub today to catch the weekend Drivers - Bagged this before heading up to Shining Tor tried to dig out the FB Number but never managed it.

3rd May 2008 11:19 by gushoneybun
It took a moment to spot, due to it being half buried.

Parked right next to it to visit the "Rev up and riode out 2008" geocaching meeting, I was so close I could have easily banged the car door against it by accident!
3rd Apr 2008 10:54 by analoguesat
A filthy day with visibility almost zero. FB plate half buried, and a log & rubbish on top of the concrete.

Brilliant sunny day with amazing views in all directions. Dropped in on this one on the way to visit Jodrell Bank with the boys.

Visited as a driveby on the way home from Mam Tor. The Bench Mark has found a new use as a traffic bollard. Flash bracket is mostly submerged and a pool of water stop me reading the number.

Gravity station. Exposed location; minor damage to top. In between clouds.

A pint size pillar in a pub car park! Scraped away some mud to verify FB number, which even then was easier to feel than to read.
22nd Apr 2006 18:15 by HamsterCaster
Now protected by little fence, fb no. now underground.

Parked right next to this one for a trip down into the Goyt, round the Resvr and up to Shining Tor.

Now wearing the traffic cone as a hat. FB number submerged under water.

Protected by a traffic cone to stop vehicles driving into it. The flush bracket is partly buried so I didn't excavate it as it so cold with an icy wind chill. Locted on the Macclesfield side of the CAT & Fiddle PH.

Foggy ,usually good views.Re Visit to photograph10/09/06 Better views today!
9th Sep 2005 13:45 by Managra
This is on the left hand side of the pub. As all of the other photies show, this is marked by a large traffic cone held down by rocks, so it was rather difficult to read the FB. Lovely views as the sun was shining - last time we were here, it was a total white-out.
17th Aug 2005 16:50 by Bekandian
Walked past it a couple of times before we realised we were looking for a FBM. Cone still protecting it. (Will upload photos when we return home on the 21st August)
17th Jul 2005 08:53 by Keith Stevens
On north side of the pub, in the disabled carpark, with protective cone. Half baried by the hard-core. My first FBM
15th Dec 2004 11:00 by elsworth
Protected by cones seems to be the idea - no obvious work being done in this car park
7th Dec 2004 16:15 by Lathama
Just a note to say that, as I was passing by on the way to the Macclesfield game, there is much building work going on here and the FBM was completely surrounded by huge red plastic cones!!
11th Sep 2004 09:14 by Historian
How many times over the years must I have passed by this one without realising it was here?!
4th Jul 2004 19:10 by John + Carol
It is protected by a traffic cone. Or is that to stop cars/people damaging themselves?
27th Jun 2004 08:05 by discjirm
Very easy to find in the car park, which is a great place to park before visiting the Cheshire/Staffordshire/Derbyshire border area. The pub also serves Old Tom, a fine ale.

6/31 for the day. In the car park of the Cat & Fiddle pub!
14th Apr 2004 22:06 by Lathama
Right in the middle of the disabled carpark of 'The Cat and Fiddle' - you could easily fall over it! Quite a Health and Safety issue, really! A few chips have come out of it. Excellent views, especially westwards. Incidentally, the pub is open all day.....

Our first FBM! We must have walked right past it so many times before as it's in the overspill carpark of the Cat and Fiddle pub. FB was underground when we arrived, but a bit of digging revealed the all-important number!
