Certainly Dec 2010 was a memorable winter over North and East Yorkshire, even at Bempton right on the coast we had over 12 inches at one point.

Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing.

Only time since we have lived here (10 years) that the Brid to Scarborough rail line has closed due to snow. I was returning from Manchester by train the day the snow started in earnest, and got as far as Scarborough, train from Scarborough home wasnt running, but the bus decided to set off. There was very little snow in Scarborough but once we left Filey it was a different world. Driver announced "I'm sorry but I will have to stick to the main road, best I can do is drop people at the nearest point to home" I had a 20 min walk from Grindale Lane end as wife couldn't get car out.

I remember visiting Thornwick Bay in early December and there being a good few inches of snow even on the beach, something I'd never seen before. We also went to Saltwick Bay near Whitby where water running out of the cliffs had frozen solild creating huge ice formations down the cliff, again quite spectacular being right on the coast.

I was living in York where life got back to normal pretty quickly with roads mainly clear, but rural roads in the region were hazardous for a good few weeks after the main snowfall. My visit to Thixendale will be a trip I will never forget, as the sheer volume of snow was unforgettable and also the car reading -7c at 1pm is potentially something I may never see again.

Thanks for your comments.
