Plenty of Snow in the Staffordshire Moorlands

Couldn't get out to join the other lads up at Dovedale on the JT masterclass, but managed to get out for a bit with the kids to do a bit of walking on The Roaches in between the snow showers. This pic of Hen Cloud was taken just before the snow really started to fall and we only managed a short distance before we had to turn back. The snow covered the road within minutes.

Looking forward to seeing some pics of the lads fishing up at Dovedale today in these conditions. They all deserve medals, especially if they've managed a Grayling or two, which I'm sure they have.

The busiest week of the year for The Wine Shop starts tomorrow, and we're looking forward to a rest and a dram on Christmas day.

A couple of days after that we'll be off to our fave holiday destination...The Isle of Islay, post and pics to follow.

  1. Dave, looks like a wild day on the Roaches, I was out earlier with my son on our bikes delivering Christmas cards. I was glad to get back for a Speckled Hen to revive me. Those guys in Dovedale must have been bl99dy freezing hope they had a good day and like you I'm looking forward to seeing some grayling. All the best for the festive season.
