  1. Booze

    Booze is a hamlet in Arkengarthdale, in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. It is about 1 mile east of Langthwaite and Arkle Town. There is a riding school nearby. The original community depended on hill farming and mining. The hamlet overlooks Slei Gill which contains several lead mining levels. Following the collapse of the lead mining industry in North Yorkshire at the end of the 19th century one of the mines, the Booze Wood Level, continued to be used as a slate mine until the beginning of the First World War. Chert was mined on Fremington Edge, south of Booze, until the beginning of the Second World War. The 1851 census counted 41 houses in Booze. A local tragedy occurred during the eighteenth century when a group of miners working underground near Boldershaw blasted into an underground lake. Twenty-four miners and two pit ponies were drowned in the flood that followed. Eighteen of the dead came from Booze. The vein became known as the Water Blast Vein. In July 2008 Royal Mail announced it was withdrawing postal services from the hamlet on health and safety grounds because access to it involves an "excessively steep" rural track. This has left local families to make a one-hour round-trip into Richmond and back to collect their mail. Postal services to the hamlet were restored after North Yorkshire County Council made road improvements.

Examples of booze in a Sentence

  1. Brad Pitt:

    I just didn't know how to deal with them. Anything I found that I used for escape, those kinds of em... those kinds of difficult feelings, I don't know how better to describe it. It can be anything, drugs, booze, Netflix, snacks. Anything. I don't want at this point to be running from anything.

  2. Raymond Chandler:

    There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen.

  3. Raffaele Perna:

    We are trying to control the amount of tipping that happens not because we don’t want them to be rewarded but they take the money and buy booze and whatever they buy and then they come back an hour later and they can’t even play the piano. That’s the heartbreaking part to it.
