Kev, what was the year in the (I think) 1950's that saw NW England (at least) get an amazingly heavy snowfall? I'm sure it was you who reported it - something like 12" of level snow in Southport, drifts of 8' in Bolton, etc

Thanks very much Kevin for this - I'll move this to the classic section in a few days. Although I put one myself there you're collection of all these newspaper cuttings which you've scanned in is well worth moving to the classic section.

Thanks again.

I've moved your 1947 one over to the classic section Kevin. I lost your name in transit so I've quoted you at the head of the  article.

All the links still work.

More ideal teatime reading, might explain why I've been getting through a lot of cuppas lately.

December 1950 was very snowy for NW England 

Manchester: 15cm of snow fell on the 4th December, another 18cm on the 14th and a further 15cm on the 30th. There were thaws between the falls.
