The Lion Inn is said to be . . .
"snowed in for weeks in winter, soaked in spring, scorched in summer - and soothed only in autumn".

Nowadays it is more often frequented by tourists and hikers on the Coast to Coast Walk.

The Lion Inn is situated at Blakey Ridge on Danby High Moor - the highest point on the North York Moors.

It dates from 1553 when it was originally built & inhabited by Monks who transported coffins across the Moors to Whitby Abbey. Later it was popular with the "jaggers" who were in charge of the trains of pack ponies who plodded the trods over the moors.
