Sunday Run and Lunch to Swettenham Arms

A new venue for this month's Sunday run to the Swettenham Arms in the Cheshire countryside.

Thirty-seven members with their wives, partners and friends enjoyed a splendid three-course lunch at the Swettenham Arms near Congleton after a Sunday run through Cheshire and parts of Derbyshire.

The day started with coffee at the Deanwater Hotel (a familiar place for most), before setting off in pleasant dry weather for the run over the Cat and Fiddle road.  Whilst this route is subject to speed restrictions for much of the way, it provided a very interesting winding road challenge, particularly the run down into Congleton from the Cat and Fiddle pub (which is now sadly closed). There were only a few Sunday drivers around to cause hold ups, so the Porsche convoy made good time. Congleton was a little congested, but then it always is!

This was the Club’s first official visit in recent years to the Swettenham Arms, which lies deep in the Cheshire countryside. A lot of interest was shown in the cars as they lined up in the car park, and it was so warm that other customers were sitting out in the garden.

R5 will probably repeat this run next year, as the food at the Swettenham arms is excellent and the driving mostly local, the run being less than 40 miles from the Deanwater starting point.
