Recently I provided some pictures of Ubley Warren in the snow to the Somerset Life magazine. These pictures were taken a few years ago using a much older camera. So when it snowed, and I did not have to go to work, I took the opportunity to return to the warren and update my pictures.
It was a truly beautiful day with deep blue skies and blue shadows on the snow.
Lead mining on the warren dates back to Roman times and there are rakes and mine shafts everywhere in the reserve.
It is an amazing landscape even without the snow. This gruffy grounds provides a range of habitats for wildlife.
The Romans excavated the lead veins that ran across the surface creating these gorges.
Gorse is rare on Mendip Hills but is found in the acid soils of the warren.
This relatively level are of the Mendip Hills is a great place for a walk.
The winter sun dropped low and it was time to get home.
