Haunting claim at Pennine Way pub
Bookmark and Share
The highest pub in England is haunted, it has been claimed.

Walker's favourite the Tan Hill Inn - which is on the Pennine Way - is believed by some to have a few more spirits about than just those behind the bar, the Teesdale Mercury reports.

"The customers often smell smoke and we just can’t explain it. It's very strange and it’s been happening for quite a while now," pub manager Angie McKinnon told the paper.

She stated the smell is that of tobacco – which cannot come from the patrons now there is a smoking ban – and that she has seen the ghost of a boy in the bunkrooms.

Those who want to put on some men's walking boots or women's walking boots and take on the Pennine Way challenge will have the opportunity to visit the pub as they walk through North Yorkshire.

Located 1,732 ft above sea level, the Tan Hill Inn was snowed in for three days over the new year.
