The Tan Hill Inn
The Tan Hill Inn
Approaching the Tan Hill Inn on the Pennine Way from the south. Leaving Keld at ten this morning I arrived at the Tan Hill Inn at 12:30 where I spent an hour before continuing north of the Pennine Way. I remember three years later when walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast when staying at Keld Youth Hostel again travelling up here to the pub in the evening and with my fellow hostellers taking part in a quiz which we won. The winnings paid for the taxi. The Tan Hill Inn is the highest inn in the British Isles at 1,732 feet (528 m) above sea level.
The Pennine Way

The Pennine Way is a National Trail in England, with a small section in Scotland. The trail runs 267 miles from Edale, in the northern Derbyshire Peak District, north through the Yorkshire Dales and the Northumberland National Park and ends at Kirk Yetholm, just inside the Scottish border. The path runs along the Pennine hills, sometimes described as the "backbone of England". Although not the United Kingdom's longest National Trail, it is according to the Ramblers' Association "one of Britain's best known and toughest".
