Re: Tan Hill Inn

As Muz says, use the lanes and visit here as well either going or coming. http://i861.photobucket.com/albums/ab173/briwy/California/Tan%20Hill%20feb%202016/P1040466small_zpsricvqgod.jpg and get some some of this. http://i861.photobucket.com/albums/ab173/briwy/California/Tan%20Hill%20feb%202016/P1040...

Re: Tan Hill Inn

Small correction. Just to clarify.
Whilst the car park is actually free the pub do ask for (or did last time) a £5/night donation to charity.

Tan Hill Inn

Get your vans out and get up here. Epic end of year meet at Britains highest pub. Why you shouldn't come. It's cold, it could snow, you could get stranded (in a pub), it's in the middle of nowhere, you may get lost :( Why you should come. It's cool, it's 1732feet above sea level, it's got BEER, it's...

Re: Mushroom roof with awning

We fitted a Fiamma awning to our Bongo. Easy to fit the awning but as you say the pin for the roof ends up behind it. I tried all sorts of pole arrangements which did work but was a bit of a faff. It is possible to push the roof up from the inside, heavy though, and I then fastened a length of nylon...

Re: European Breakdown Insurance

We used them a few years ago and had excellent service when I stupidly forgot to flick the switch on the control unit and flattened the starter battery. The breakdown truck in France actually broke down on the way to us causing us to miss our ferry from Le Havre. They paid for us to use the tunnel (...

Re: Tan Hill Inn Highest Pub

Shame there are no really steep roads with snow on Paul. Could have had another epic. :lol:

Re: Tan Hill Inn Highest Pub

I think there will be plenty of room adjacent to the pub. There is room at both sides, directly in front and over the road at the front. I guess most of us will be there late afternoon/early evening so the car park shouldn't be too busy then so hopefully we can all be together. I suggest we get roun...

Re: Tan Hill Inn Highest Pub

I don't think there's a limit Stu.
I told them there would probably be seven or eight vans there.
Perhaps some idea of how many people will be eating on Saturday night and if anyone wants breakfast would be good and then I'll ring them again to make sure they know.
