The Ideal Way to Top Off a Wintertime Geology Field Trip

Snow plough and gritter finally end drawn-out New Year party after cross country club gets cut off in cold snap.

England's longest New Year party finally ended this morning when a snow plough and gritter reached Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in the country, where 30 students and teachers had been cut off for two days.

Supplies of draught beer were down to Black Sheep's Riggwelter as the group from Leeds University cross country club consoled themselves amid 7ft drifts.
The Guardian Actually, as the excerpt notes, this was a cross country club, not a geology club. Had it been a geology club, there wouldn't have been any beer left, period.
