Some of you may know this location from the film Withnail & I. If you do know the film then this is obviously Crow Crag, country retreat of Uncle Monty. For those of you that don't have a clue what i'm on about this is an old farm house called Sleddale Hall located well off the beaten track near to Shap in the Lakes. Basically since the film was made in 1987 the property has remained derelict and became a mecca for film fans who are hardcore enough to research the location and make the 45 minute walk across wilderness. I'm amazed that no-one appears to have posted this on here before. Unfortunately (or not, depending on how you view it) someone has bought the house and it's currently being restored so is not accessible anymore. However, i believe the guy who owns it is sympathetic to Withnail fans and has been known to give the odd tour round ...don't quote me on that though.
