After we had all survived the Beast from The East at the start of March i set off for a springlike week in the Peak District. I enjoyed a balmy afternoon at Ladybower Reservoir but then the snow and gales set in. By Sunday morning Tideswell was swamped by a foot of snow and I was going nowhere in my car.
Having spent most of the morning indoors I decided to go for a circular walk to take a few snow photographs. Wow! As soon as I got off the side road onto the designated track I realised that I was in for a spectacular walk. The snow was being blown off the fields and against the walls making huge and shapely snowdirfts. I had to replan my walk as there was no way that I could navigate the whole track. My second plan was a non starter either so I finished up on a there and back linear. However, it was so amazing that I didn't really care.
Here are some of the snowdrifts that I encountered.
