CROWN AT MANFIELD - OPEN AS USUAL DURING ROAD CLOSURE
The following is taken from NumberTwenty2's facebook page,
'The Crown Inn is open as usual in spite of North Yorkshire Highways best efforts. The signs say road closed for 5 weeks (Piercebridge side) and in fairness do state that businesses are open as usual.
It is so frustrating though for Peter and Karen when there is so little happening and there clearly is access through the roadworks.
Timothy Taylor, Marstons and Village Brewer are sponsoring a loyalty scheme to those making the effort to get to The Crown Inn.'
I've noticed myself that very little seems to be going on, I am aware that some people are driving round the cones - but bear in mind you could get into bother with the police if you are caught doing this!
If you collect eight stamps, you get one drink free - so what better excuse to make a short detour to access the Crown from the Stapleton end?
