The Tan Hill Inn: The Highest Pub in the British Isles

At the top of the Yorkshire Dales, 1,732 feet above sea-level and 11 miles from the nearest town, this most isolated 17th Century pub is one of the few in the land that has seen business thrive of late. Observer photographer Gary Calton was dispatched along with reporter Tracy McVeigh, to find out why.
