In Pictures / Winter Wonderland – Part 4

WITH a steady thaw now under way it is high time to publish the final instalment of our Winter Wonderland series, and to look back at an extraordinary week of snow that closed schools for up to five days, created transport havoc and was nevertheless enjoyed by most people.

Many thanks once again to all our contributors.
