Lock in: Dozens stuck in England's highest pub after storm
November 28, 2021
LONDON (AP) — Dozens of customers who stopped for a drink at Britain's highest altitude pub got a longer stay than they bargained for, after the building was cut off by a blizzard.
Sixty-one people woke up Monday after their third night at the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales, 270 miles (435 kilometers) north of London. They have been unable to leave since Friday, when a late autumn storm brought snow and heavy winds that felled power cables and blocked roads.
The pub sits 1,732 feet (528 meters) above sea level and is used to being cut off by bad weather.
