There are some famous love stories associated with the Great Inns of Britain.  Shibden Mill Inn, has produced a delightful home-grown gin, Jack the Lass Gin, in honour of Anne Lister, exquisitely brought to life on screen by Suranne Jones in the recent BBC drama Gentleman Jack.  The Inn is a stone’s throw from Shibden Hall where she would frequently abound on her way to court her one true love, Ann Walker.  Shibden Hall is thought to be the inspiration behind Thurshcross Grange, which appears in another great literary romance, Wuthering Heights
