The first two weeks of January 2010 were very cold with snow covering virtually all of the UK for a time. On the 5th into the 6th January there was a significant snow event in the South, and the highest depths were nearly foot in some southern counties inland from the South Coast, with 27cm recorded at Reading. East Devon got less than this (about 6cm) but it was still the most snow in Harpford for at least 10 years, probably more like over 20 years (until 25cm in December 2010!) . With the very cold weather the snow lay for several days here, and more in other parts of the country. Some higher parts of the north of England and Scotland had lying snow for around a month.
This gallery contains quite a lot of pictures taken from the 6th to the 11th, and are mainly in the order that they were taken. Early on the 7th and the 8th, the temperature fell to -11.7°C and -12.2°C respectively.
