Locked-in Snow

Some of you may be getting fed up with snow pictures, but there is not much else to see at the moment. Most street scenes at the moment look a mess with slushy partly-thawed snow that has turned brown with all the grit that some people were claiming wasn't being spread.

But perhaps a lot of you are just getting fed up with having to go out and travel in the snow but are quite happy to sit in the warm and look at pictures of it!

This is another photo from last week, when the snow was fresh and deep. It shows Micklehurst Lock on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in Mossley. (Sorry, Ashton, but the snow was better in Mossley, even though it's only 4 miles from Ashton!)

I'm not quite sure whether to describe it as "locked-in snow" or "snowed-in lock" but, with the ice beyond the lock so thick that there were footsteps in the snow that covered the surface, there isn't going to be anyone trying to get a boat through here for a while!

On the hill in the background you can just make out the spire of St John's Church, Roughtown.

See Birds Eye View of this location.
