As snow returns to Mansfield district we look back at winters from the past with our slideshow

AS SNOW fell again this weekend across the district and beyond, we take a trip down memory lane to see what winters were like in times gone by.

Here is a slideshow of pictures from the past of numerous wintry scenes giving us a view into a time when residents couldn’t retreat into centrallly heated homes and there wasn’t a fleet of gritters to keep roads open.

Many people may remember many winters from decades ago that were much worse than in recent times without modern vehicles to get us home and technology to keep us notified of bad weather ahead.
