601 Cat and Fiddle from Dane Bower

Tempted by a smiling forecaster promising sunny intervals we set out towards the Cat and Fiddle, only to be met with stinging rain driven along by gale force winds. But even wild weather failed to spoil the day as we enjoyed a tasty lunch behind a solid gritstone wall, while day's end gave a striking sunset view of Shutlingsloe.
