Look North

13 August 2015

A really nice piece on “Pigs Might Fly” and the real life “Inn at the Top” (aka Tan Hill), filmed by Philip Chapman , was broadcast on BBC TV’s Look North (the North-East and Cumbria version) last night. If you’re quick you can catch it here till 7pm today (Thursday13th August)


It contains a few clips from a documentary made back in the 1980s when I owned the inn, and the frighteningly young-looking protagonist brought back memories of the daily struggle to start the generator and dropping down through a hole in a snow drift considerably taller than my six foot four inches, in search of the water pump. Happy days?!
