Sheffield Snow

February 3, 2009

Sheffield-Snow-NewCarPark-2-2-09

Snow hit Sheffield and South Yorkshire – like most of the eastern UK – on Sunday 1 February.  In reality it was nothing to worry about, though being Britain most transport stopped!  These photographs were all taken in or near the city centre on the evening of Monday 2.

Above: The new car park.  To the left is the site of the Moor redevelopment while just visible to the right is the new fire station.
