Buxton 10

It says that Buxton is only 10 miles, but you would not have made it in a car that day as the road was blocked just a few mile on.

Onecote snow

A shot of the church in Onecote in the snow, although the main road through the village was clear it was still a bit of a hair raising journey getting there, but well worth it to see such a lovely spot in perfect conditions.
