We woke to bright sunshine yesterday, but by the time we’d parked at Dunham and strolled down to the canal towpath, it was snowing.
We left the towpath to join the path leading to Dunham Massey, via the Swan with Two Nicks.
The house, closed for the winter, stood stark below the heavy sky.
Down one of the ‘rides’ a lonely obelisk stood splattered with fresh snow.
The sky briefly cleared.
Fallow deer tucked into the feed provided by the National Trust.
Returning to the car, a moorhen scooted away.
The ducks, seabirds and swans were all concentrated into a small area where running water had inhibited the pond from freezing over.
