Peter’s price of flame

Daily Star - - NEWS -

A LAND­LORD stands by his pub’s fire which he says has been burn­ing away for 174 years.

Peter Par­sons says the em­bers at the The War­ren House in Dart­moor, Devon, have been kept alive since 1845, when tin min­ers took shel­ter at the inn.

He claims the logs to keep the iso­lated bar warm cost him “thousands” of pounds a year.

He added: “You have to get good qual­ity tim­ber – it’s more cost ef­fec­tive. Even in those two days a year we can call sum­mer it’s go­ing.”
