Tennant Arms – Kilnsey (2nd Visit)

After a prolonged break of four weeks without a walk, and in all honesty five weeks without a taxing walk, it was good to get out up in the hills again. And with it being a warm day we worked up quite a thirst, thus at just gone 11am we were in the Tennant Arms in Kilnsey being overlooked by the Crag!

Although the pub was open, the barman seemed somewhat surprised to have any custom so early in the day, and seemed a tad lethargic serving us. He did so however, and lets hope he’s on commission, as the first round of three Diet Read the rest of this entry »

The Crown – Horton-in-Ribblesdale (2nd Visit)

Back to the Crown Inn, following the badgers’ 3 peaks “dry” run. It had been a thoroughly miserable day weather-wise, but we had completed the three peaks nonetheless and the drinks today were hard earned.

And the thing about the Crown Inn, is that you can see it on the horizon for the last stretch of the walk, and as such, you are more than ready to get in there to quench that thirst. Read the rest of this entry »
