" Free At Last"

By stephenscott
Well for many of you who watch the news and read the papers you will of heard about the Lion Inn on north yorkshire moors which was cut off for 9 days due to heavy snow fall.

There was 6 members of staff and 2 memebers of public snowed in for 9 days as the 16th century inn was surrounding in a 20ft wall of snow.

The main road to the lion inn was 6-8 ft in places and it taken jcb diggers 9 days to reach the stranded inn.

Luckily the pub always has a large stock of food for when events like this happen. Speaken to one of the memebrs of staff they said " Its the ulimate lock inn,well it was at first i just want to go home now" playing mononply was about all they could do really and the game lasted to evenings.

The pub is fully open again now thanks to the North Yorkhire County Council for braveing sstrong winds and drifting snow.

You will see this picture in local papers and tonight it mite be on tyne tees as i did a interview with them yesterday evening.

The photo shows some of the memebrs of staff which were there for the 9 days.

Thans for all votes and coments on past uplaods

I will try catch up on everyone soon..
