First snow

The snow had already fallen on the high ground, so yesterday I decided to drive upto the moorlands of the Cat & Fiddle for some photo opportunities. The snow is forecast to hit the lowlands tomorrow thus ensuring the snowfall will close the Cat and Fiddle road for days to come

Sheep feeding at the base of Shuttlingsloe - The Matterhorn of Cheshire

a Majestic peak even if its not quite the same as the original Matterhorn

roads cutting through the landscape are still passable

Red Grouse in flight
Danebower Chimney - part of the old Slate Mine

Looking towards Threeshire Heads

Boundry stone of Cheshire
 (the other borders of three shires are Derbyshire and Staffordshire)
The iconic Cat & Fiddle Inn

leaving the Matterhorn in the distance

Dropping towards Macclesfield you pass White Nancy

Tomorrow the snow hits home!

Dave, that name Cat and the Fiddle, how fun that is, and the snow looks lovely, but also has to be oh so cold~
