Snowman on a bench in the Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury, Wiltshire

From the Archives: Salisbury in the Snow

It rarely snows in Salisbury (much to the disgust of my children). The last meaningful coverage we had was back in January 2013. After a night of heavy snowfall we wrapped up and popped out into the garden for my daughter’s first experience of snow, snowball fights and snowman building. Afterwards the kids headed back indoors to dry off and defrost their little fingers with hot chocolate whilst I set off into the City with my old Nikon D700 to see what I could find. Below is a gallery with a small selection of photographs from that day five years ago.
