    I’d forgot how severe that winter was, probably because it was getting pretty normal in the late 70’s/early 80’s to have lengthy snowy and cold spells in winter.

    I don’t think the snow here reached the sort of levels that Wales had but early 82 saw a succession of heavy falls and conditions were up there with 1979 at times.

    Would like to see photos from Jan 84 Scotland and Cumbria. A month rarely mentioned but brought trifle amounts to those parts.. probably be cause places little population affected.

    These are great photos by the way.
