Tan Hill is Britain’s highest and most famous inn.
Alone in an ocean of moorland, far from the nearest town and many miles from its next door neighbour, it’s one of the few Dark Sky sites in Britain. A million stars, and sometimes the Northern Lights, shine overhead.
Over the centuries shepherds, drovers, miners and packhorse traders used this lonely inn. In modern times it’s featured in dozens of TV dramas and adverts, hosted musicians like Mark Ronson and the Arctic Monkeys, and millions of walkers, travellers and tourists. The question they all ask: Why is there an inn here and how has it survived and flourished when so many pubs are closing?
This beautifully illustrated book answers the questions and celebrates this extraordinary, iconic place: The World Famous Tan Hill Inn, Britain’s highest, Brit- ain’s best.
