Update on the Wizard Inn

Shares

 

The Wizard Inn will close its doors for the last time on Sunday 9 February following over 22 years of trading.

The building is owned by the National Trust, and the building will be closed for a period of time once the pub ceases trading.

This will allow maintenance work to be carried out and the future use of the building to be decided.  

National Trust general manager at Alderley Edge, Rachel Thomas said: “We’re sad to see the pub close its doors and we’re grateful to all those who have been part of The Wizard Inn at Alderley Edge.

“The building was given to the National Trust with the rest of the land in 1948 and the area continues to be a much-loved place to visit.

“The future use of the building has not been decided but we don’t intend to sell it. We’re currently exploring options to make the building accessible to visitors in the future.”

Despite the closure of the pub, the Wizard Tea Room will remain open as normal serving food and drink.

The National Trust area of Alderley Edge (known locally as The Edge) is popular with visitors and attracts around 300,000 people per year.

The areas is a Site of Special Scientific Interest owing to its geology and the history of copper mining dating back to the Bronze Age.

It is also well-known for its wizard myth, which inspired the Alan Garnder novel The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.

The National Trust says it will take some time to consider what’s best for The Wizard Inn, and to ensure it’s part of its long-term plans Alderley Edge.
