I was fortunate that I happened to have a day off work when the one good snowfall of winter 2008-09 took place. It was in February 2009, and I decided to go for a walk into the park and then into Risley Moss. With almost nobody else around, these are some of the images that I captured on the walk. Within an hour, most of the snow had disappeared completely.
More recently, we had a much more significant snowfall in January 2010. You can see a gallery of 50 images from around Birchwood and including within Risley Moss by clicking here. There is also a video showing clips that were taken in Risley Moss. Several of the photos were used for a display within Risley Moss Visitor Centre.
