VARIOUS STUFF - CAT AND FIDDLE SNOW JANUARY 1996
BACK TO WEATHER PHOTO INDEX


Late January 1996 was quite cold & snowy but by 31st January the snow had thawed from the lower parts of Cheshire where I lived. But driving into the hills above Macclesfield the sun was shining on still snow covered fields.

 


By the summit of the A537 road from Macc to Buxton at the Cat & Fiddle pub (over 500 metres / 1700 feet above sea level) it was a different story with low cloud and a bitterly cold wind blowing.

Every vertical surface was covered in thick spikes of ice, I'd never seen anything like it!

And I mean everything - as seen left on the bus stop and AA phone or below on the pub sign and radio mast. Inbetween taking each photo I had to run to the car to thaw my fingers out, I don't know what the wind chill was but believe me, it was cold!
