Pub.

For who aren't familiar with it, This is Tan Hill Inn, which at 1732ft above sea level is Britains Highest Pub.

The building dates to the 17th century and during the 18th century was used as a hostelry by workers digging coal pits. The last mine on Tan Hill closed in 1929, although the pub was able to remain due to the custom of local farmers and the development of the motor car. The building is unusual for its isolation, but it used to be surrounded by miners' cottages, until these were demolished after the closure of the mines in the 1920s.
From 1974, border changes moved it into County Durham, but this was reviewed in 1987 after much protest, and it reverted to within the Yorkshire boundary.
In 1995, the Tan Hill Inn became the first public house in the UK to be granted a licence to hold weddings and civil ceremonies, after new laws were brought in to allow couples to marry in places other than churches or registry offices, although it no longer holds the licence.

Revellers celebrating New Year's Eve at the pub on 31 December 2009 were unable to leave the pub for three days as they were snowed in.

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Den

Also nearly forgot, a huge thank you to Nezih (nonur) for his UA yesterday

Ah, I've spent many a happy hour (or two, maybe even longer) in the Tan Hill, cracking pub and it is really, really isolated, not another building to be seen.

Excellent shot Den, I must make the effort and head back up that way soon.

A fantastic capture of this prominent thirst quenching landmark. I have had a few pints in their after a long and thirstly walk before.

It's been a cosy haven for many a stranded motorist. This captures the height and the isolation.

When I first looked at this image I wondered what a boat was doing on the right. Then I looked closer and realised that it was a snow plough, which makes more sense. Terrific lighting and as Moira says, by giving it space and a lot of foreground, you have really caught the isolation.

We were so disappointed that the pub was closed when we reached it, but I'm glad it still exists in the wilderness. Lovely shot. Smile

Lovely warm, evening light, Den. I notice the snowplow is handily placed.
