December 1990 here.

2 feet of level snow and no electricity and water for 4 days (at least we had gas!)

Some villages were completely cut off for a week in North WARKS

At my elevation lucky to get any snow accumalation (19m)

December 2010 by far the best 11cm and stuck around for around seven days.

When I was living at a boarding school during the winter of 1978 and 1979, I was told by a teacher that the snow was over 5ft deep.

Skied on a level base of 4m.

In terms of home, 30cm when I lived in North Wales and a poor 13cm whilst in South London.

The least snowiest area in the UK is Cornwall. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/learning/precipitation/snow/snow-in-the-uk

Cornwall will have infrequent snow but it can get monster falls against embedded falls even if they melt quickly. 

I would say the least snow location may be somewhere like Brighton, very hard to get a set up that even produces snow let alone talk about amounts.

Yeah true especially if they get a channel low but they've become quite rare, still not sure why he seems to think his location is the least snowiest though.

I was in Southend in January 1987 during the Blizzard where it was reported that between 21-24 inches (53-60cms) snow fell.  Found this fantastic video on Youtube that does it justice (not the music though!).

Deepest December snow is 1ft back in 1988 which was damp snow and now much better dry snow dec 2017.

January measured snow 13 inches 2010...1982 gave 18 inches approx.

February 1 foot in 2007 beating the 1980`s snow depths for that month.

March another smash record 2013 gave another foot.

April max gave 9 inches in 1998,2000 and 2012.

May of missed something out.

In Kilburn NW London best I can remember is about 6 inches, but back in Jan 1987 in the Isle of Sheppy, Kent  where my Nan lived, it was up to my head   6ft of level snow.

1978 brought feet of snow here, but no exact measurement. A few events in the 80's brought 8 - 10 inches, as did 1994. I didn't have any lying snow from 1996 until 2009, where a few inches fell. 2010 was a disaster and not worth mentioning. Feb 2015 brought about 3 inches, but Feb 2018 brought the most snow here since 1994. Circa 8 - 9 inches.

Deepest round here for each month since 1987

Nov 5-10cm 20/11/88 (can't remember exact amount but was enough for sledging and way more than any other Nov fall)

Dec 28cm 11-12/12/17 (as above)

Jan 10cm 22-24/01/13

Feb 15cm 08/02/91

Mar 12cm 12/03/06

Apr 2cm 02/04/12

December seems to be the best month for deep snow here, having 3 out of 4 of the depths of 15cm+. February hasn't had more than 7cm since 1994.
