A little bit of snow on Dartmoor

I had a meeting at Finch yesterday morning and on the way into Sticklepath I took this picture of a snowy Cosdon Beacon.

Cosdon1From what I could see most of the high moor had a reasonable dusting of snow (double click the photo to enlarge it)

Cosdon2 I like the patterns of the medieval field below Cosdon and I think the colours of the arable field contrast rather nicely

Finch 1This is the best patch of snow that could be managed at Finch Foundry but the roads down into the village were a bit slushy.

Elsewhere on the moor my colleagues could get into Widecombe first thing as the hill down from Haytor was too icy and snowy – they did manage to get there by noon.

All the snow has now gone, melted and washed away by the heavy rain that arrived late afternoon. We now have flood warnings on a number of rivers – including the Teign, Dart and Bovey – welcome to the winter!
