So winter hit London recently. The temperature dropped to around freezing last weekend and the snow started to fall Sunday evening. Liz and I got a few walks in at some of our favourite South East London nature spots…
Dulwich Wood – Sunday 11 Dec
The colder temperatures made for a very atmospheric walk through Dulwich Wood on Sunday morning. The damp air was made into a frosty fog which was just perfect atmosphere for an ancient woodland.
South Norwood Country Park – Monday 12 Dec
Post snowfall walk and we are off to South Norwood Country Park. It’s a large woodland, lake, and open fields that has a, as per Wikipedia ‘long and chequered history, from the days of the Great North Wood to ancient moated house, sewage farm, farming, the war years, civil defence, allotments, wasteland, highways, refuse dump and now the Country Park’
Crystal Palace Park – Tuesday 13 Dec
We did one last impromptu walk around South Norwood Lake on Thursday. I had forgotten my phone that day and didn’t have a camera with me so no snaps from there.
Well, now that that we’ve had a few warmer days and lots of rain these frosty scenes are a thing of the past. This Canadian loved it while it lasted! A few more photos can be found over on my Flickr album ❄️
