Peter’s price of flame
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.”
