From Nont's there are spectacular views over to Scammonden Water and Halifax in the far distance, which can actually be seen from the restaurant's dining area. It's 1155 feet above sea level so you'll realise how cold it was up there with all the snow around. In fact while we were eating our lunch there was a light snow flurry.
Considering how far away from the sea the building is, it does actually have some nautical connections. The maple wood panelling that surrounds the front of the bar area came from a stateroom on the trans-Atlantic liner, Mauritania after it was scrapped.
This place has provided lots of memories for me as I first went there with my (then) boyfriend (now my husband).
Looking toward the Moors...
No matter the time, distant past or present, you wouldn't want to travel across these moors in bad weather.
I was grateful I could go back to a warm hotel room eventually.
