Crazy Col (on the left) runs the Helwith Bridge pub, otherwise known as "The Pit". The pub never closes and is a veritable nesting ground for freaks and the detritus of the surrounding area. It never fails to provide either a grey-beared freak banging on about digging on the Allotment, crazy food (pig liver veg) or a random freak "I'm on medication you know!". It is *the* place for drinking after a long caving trip and is guaranteed to make you feel like shite in the morning. Still, Col is infinately better than the witches who ran it before him !
