Storm Arwen left 61 people dead at Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales after five feet of snow suddenly fell on Friday (26 November). The pub is at 528 meters above sea level, the highest in the UK.

Many traveled to pubs to see the band, but were trapped when the snow-blocked cars and roads became impassable.


Mike Kenney, owner of Tan Hill Inn told Manchester Evening News: “We advised anyone in the pub to stay outside rather than risk life on the snow-capped moors.

“No one is going anywhere yet. The police have advised all of us to stay out for the time being. There’s snow in our avalanche!”

The group of people now face a third night trapped in the pub.

Noasis wrote on Twitter on Saturday (27 November). “Sorry to announce that we @tanhillinn are stranded in Yorkshire.”

“Oh, it’s a lovely war! Stranded for the third night – hopefully it rains tomorrow,” he added earlier this evening (November 28).


The pub staff have prepared a karaoke evening today to keep the excitement going among the stranded. They have also organized a quiz, shown movies on projectors and cooked Sunday lunch for all the guests.
The general manager of the pub, Nicola Townsend, told Guardian“They’ve made a lot of friendships. Like a big family is the best way to describe it. One woman actually said ‘I don’t want to leave.'”
Guests are also sleeping on makeshift beds next to the bar.

Pub-dwellers may find themselves stranded for a while.

More inclement weather is expected in the coming days, with a minus 10C Arctic blast expected after last week’s blizzards and high winds.

A cold weather alert has also been issued by the UK Heath Security Agency and will remain in effect until tomorrow (29 November).
