White World

Ashton has turned white this week with several snowfalls over the weekend. The first picture, taken on Sunday afternoon, shows the busy Wellington Road that runs through the town centre. On the left of the picture is the Market Hall and in the centre the Town Hall.

The photo shows a bus heading out of town. Less than an hour later, First Bus recalled all its buses to the depot, leaving shoppers to get home as best as they could. Luckily for many the Stagecoach buses continued to run.

The second photo shows nearby Cowhill Lane and St James Church. There is plenty of room to park but you might have a problem knowing where the yellow lines are!

  2. Looks rather worse than we have had it...the church is beautiful with snow on the spires. Thanks for visiting my blog - I look forward to more trips across the Pennines!

  3. What marvelous, snow shots! It does look cold, but beautiful!

    Wishing you a very happy holiday season!


  4. Great shots, looks like your having fun building your snowman though:)

  5. Missing Ashton already. Similar snow here in Norwich.

  6. Ashton has had much more snow than Bristol! Nice pictures, the light is really good :)

  7. Lovely shots - you certainly have had quite a lot of snow this time.

  8. Horrendous today too. I got up to the hospital this morning OK but coming back it took the bus 35 minutes. After shopping in the Market Hall I went to the bus station. There was already a long queue and I waited 50 minutes until they diverted a 216 into a 330 but to Hyde only. It took over an hour to complete the journey and I then had trudge home the rest of the way through the slush as even the taxis seemed to have given up.

  9. I love the second picture. Churches in snow always look charming, but I especially like the "double" thing going on here-- two lines of cars, two church spires, two posts at the gate, and the two figures walking through. Nicely captured!

  10. Nice winter pictures, not so 'nice' for the car drivers and so.
