Flower Pot

In recent winters we have had two or three inches of snow! Yet the full road system grinds to an halt, people don't go to work & the kids are sent home from school.
These two pictures of The Flower Pot and the entrance to Hagg Wood taken in 1947 show snows that drifted to several feet in places cutting off several areas of Upper Hopton, Whitley & Grange Moor.
Although it took several weeks for the snow to thaw completely the local council, without all the specialized ploughing equipment of today, soon had the bus routes open to allow the population to reach their work places and schools.
