Snow at Shliton in 1985

We may not get any snow now, despite the forecaster's dire warnings of a severe winter, but that certainly was not the case 21 years ago. On 10 February 1985, a snow plough clears the Burford to Carterton road near Shilton, followed by a selection of now classic cars! The wind was whipping the snow off the fields and undoing all the highway department's efforts.
