Those wearing men's winter jackets
and women's winter jackets
when heading to the highest pub in the land may have found them particularly handy when spending new year there after being snowed in for three days.
The Tan Hill Inn is located 1,732 ft above sea level and it was cut off by drifts until a plough managed to break through yesterday (January 3rd).
One partygoer described the situation as "the ultimate lock in", with visitors helping to prepare meals, keep the generator going and taking part in marathon quizzes.
Snow drifts had been up to seven feet deep in places around the area in North Yorkshire.
Those heading outdoors in the winter weather may also wish to invest in men's walking boots
or women's walking boots
to cope better with the snow, not least as this can avoid getting shoes filled with the white stuff and then wet as it melts.
Such boots may also beat a path to the pub during better weather, as it is located on the Pennine Way, which stretches from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm on the Scottish border.
