Looking across Ribblesdale towards the River Ribble. In the snow-covered field, next to the road to High Birkwith, the sheep are trying to get through to the grass below.
April snow in the Yorkshire Dales 2012
Overnight on the 3rd April 2012, light rain became sleet, which in turn became a blizzard that covered the Yorkshire Dales in a blanket of snow. By mid morning on the 4th the snow was already melting, however, the volume of snow that had fallen on the fells produced deep drifts that blocked some lanes, and sadly killed many new-born lambs. Nevertheless, the walker, who is fortunate in not having to worry about such things, was provided with wonderful views throughout the day.
