The Saltersgate Inn, Fylingdales Moor, Yorkshire, UK

The now derelict Saltersgate Inn was a welcome sight to benighted travellers between Whitby and Pickering over the wild Fylingdales Moor. More than three hundred years old, its peat fire had allegedly never been allowed to go out in all that time. On several occasion I have had to dig my vehicle out of the snow here, so I know it well! The inn stands near the foot of Saltersgate Bank, a hill with a devilish hairpin bend halfway down, which even today in icy conditions is a challenge to travellers.
