A45 empty of traffic, 1990
The day after a sudden very localised heavy snowfall - one of the rare occasions one can stand in a carriageway of the A45 without risk to life and limb. What you can't see is the large number of stranded articulated lorries coaches etc. that failed to make this rise by Allesley Park (on the left).
