    Farnborough in Hampshire has recorded some of the coldest night-time temperatures in the UK over the past few days with several minima of -8C or below (-10C last night).

    Here are a couple of pics from a rather cold Sunday bike ride...

    Basingstoke Canal alongside Farnborough airfield. The swans had kept a little area free of ice, and there's also a heron there although rather hard to spot!:

    The ice was pretty difficult to smash but I had to find out how thick it was... 4 inches, thicker in places:

    And up on the heath there were some big puddles that were frozen solid enough to play around on with my bike... :blush:
