Winter comes to Derbyshire


On the edge of the Moors, above Buxton, Derbyshire

A Dry Stone Wall clings to the contours of the landscape.  Hawthorns that once grew in the shelter of the wall, now tall, windswept and bent, bare and ready to face the winter.

Winter comes to Derbyshire, its severity will be anyone’s guess.  Over the past few years it has been unexpectedly mild…. so, maybe this year it will be the year to revert to norm, with thick snows.. Should it snow, then that stone wall will provide shelter of sorts for the moorland sheep.

What ever winter brings….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

      1. He he, no, they cannot! Weather forecasting is NOT an exact sciense, they say, and when things get tough, bot you and I become forecasters with a 50/50 chance of being correct – just as the other forecasters! 🙂
