Mud seems a distant memory given we've now had three weeks or so of lying snow and temperatures that have rarely risen above freezing. Our normal pattern of walks has certainly been disrupted as only the brave (or foolhardy) would venture down some of our local narrow lanes. We're lucky though to have Preston's Tram Road close by as well as being able to hop in to the car to get to local parks for a good run around. In a relative lull between Christmas and New Year we even made it out to Roddlesworth and Tockholes, although we began our walk at Abbey Village as the road over the tops was closed due to black ice.
We don't normally add many pictures to our blog entries but I'm pretty sure we'll soon be looking back on the last few weeks and finding hard to imagine the winter wonderland we've experienced.
Early morning on Leyland Road. Welcome to Penwortham!
