A week of new words - 1. noutch

Blue John

If Castleton's mine
Gives you cardiac arrest
They'll call you a noutch.


On a recent fieldtrip we went down the Blue John cavern, where our guide told us that, occasionally, someone gets ill whilst underground.  To relay the message to the surface and get help, whilst avoiding causing panic over the intercom, the tour leaders use a code word.
