On a lonely site high in the Yorkshire Dales stands a unique and historic place dating back to the 17th century. With its exposed beams, stone-flagged floor and welcoming fire, the Tan Hill Inn, Britain’s highest public house at 1,732 feet (528m) above sea level.
The Tan Hill Inn Situated on the Pennine Way
The Pennine Way runs 267 miles from Edale, in the northern Derbyshire Peak District, straight through us in the Yorkshire Dales, ending at Kirk Yetholm, just inside the Scottish border, this is where walkers brush shoulders with inquisitive tourists.
The Tan Hill Inn is a 17th Century Pub that is Full of History
The Tan Hill Inn is the highest inn in the British Isles at 1,732 feet (528 m) above sea level. The building dates to the 17th century and during the 18th century was used as a hostelry by workers digging coal pits.

By the way Tan (shown above is still alive and butting
Tan used to race around the bar and eat the biscuits under the coffee machine. Sherbet loved the fire and going out and chasing the sheep away from the pub.
2009 was when the cat jumped in the back of my Focus estate , as Luan and Kev brought me back from Heysham after a nasty motorcycle accident. Tan one day knocked my out of the way so he could sit next to the fire (did tell him he had a wooley coat unlike mere humans) and that grumpy old terrier was always having a grump at the birds
I seem to recall that lamb being called Larry, or was I just drunk???
Larry the lamb. 2010
Tan, Sherbet, Minty. 2007. :)
Well I know we were there that year but cannot recall when
Possibly 2006; the lamb in two of those photos looks similar to the one I got a photo of next to the fire on 24th March that year
Tan the lamb. 2007. Camped there in March and ended up sleeping in the car. Brrrrr
