The blanket of snow covering Corfe Mullen today (Fri 18th Jan) amounted to nearly 10cm (4 inches) and brought all sorts of businesses and organisations to a halt. The schools and Parish council office were closed but the Library and the main Co-op were open.

Lots of people stayed home from work and since schools were closed, they had a great time playing about in the snow.

Here's a snowman sighted in Ralph Road but more pictures below and in the Village Photo Album (flickr group - see block on right). Please do upload yours to flickr and add to the group for others to see.


A Wilts & Dorset bus got stuck and had to drop off its passengers and call the W&D depot for help. The bus held up the traffic briefly around the junction at the top of Henbury View Road and a number of other vehicles could be seen sliding around on the compacted snow in the road.

Many people took advantage of the conditions to use sledges, either on the pavements or on the slope of the dog walking area of the Rec.
