The best sledging valley around

Just down the hill, across the pooh-sticks bridge, along the river bank, through the kissing gate and we’re there.

The place where the kids from the two villages - separated by the valley - meet to shout and scream in delight as time and again they whizz down the hill on all sorts of sledging creations - some big and on runners, others small and plastic. All designed for maximum fun.

We’ve had a great weekend in the snow. School was shut on Friday and thick snow fell all day. Perfect for a sledging expedition on Saturday and again today.

Hot chocolate and treacle spice sponge cake at the top of the hill kept us going and now we’re all pressing our noses against the window hoping for more snow so we can go out and do it all again tomorrow…

PS: please excuse the quality of these photographs - I didn’t want to take one of my ‘proper’ cameras out so relied on my very broken and scratched iPhone camera..
