After several days of feeling slightly smug as the weather attacked Britain to the North, East and west of us, we finally got our come uppance overnight with about 10 cms falling and blowing hard from the East. Cars coming down Moor End Road from New Mills were crawling gingerly along at around 10mph ( and that was the 4 by 4’s !! )
It was dangerous to stray off piste and walking proved a safer , probably faster , alternative. The gritter arrived on Church Road after a couple of minor skirmishes between motorists and walls.
