Exceptional Snow Hits Village


20th December 2010

Already by 10am this morning (20-12-2010) over 6 inches of snow has blanketed Maiden Newton in a little over 2 hours, with gritters struggling to keep the main roads open.

This new heavy snowfall is adding to snow that fell over the weekend, covering slush and ice on the roads and pavements and making parts of the village almost impassable.

Here are a few pictures taken of the village over the weekend of the first fall of snow.
