Ellesmere Shropshire is located by the side of ‘the Mere’, one of the largest natural meres in England outside the Lake District and one of nine glacial meres in the area. (‘glacial’ means that the depression occupied by the mere was the location of a block of ice that persisted at the end of the last Ice Age). These meres are different from those in the Lake District in that they do not have a flow of water into them to maintain the level.An artificial island in the Mere was constructed in 1812 from soil dug out during the making of the gardens at Ellesmere House. This was later named Moscow Island, as Napoleon was forced to retreat from Moscow that year. The Mere has a visitors’ center and is popular with birdwatchers, many of whom visit to see grey herons nesting. There are eight other meres nearby: Blakemere, Colemere, Crosemere, Kettlemere, Newtonmere, Whitemere, Sweatmere, and Hanmer Mere.

Ellesmere Shropshire snowstorm December 2017

ellesmere shropshire snow storm

Ellesmere Shropshire snowstorm

Ellesmere Shropshire had a large covering of snow in the aftermath of storm Caroline, as Caroline moved across to Scandinavia it dragged cold weather down from the North and over Britain.

North Wales and the Midlands as well as Scotland took the brunt of the Snow leaving people stranded and the Met Office giving a severe weather warning stating not to drive unless absolutely necessary.

To some this weather is a shock as over the last few years we have had relatively mild Winters, the younger generation will not remember severe snowstorms that we had in the 1970s and 1980’s, I remember as a youngster myself the snow drifting over the hedges and even came across farmers digging their tractors out of the lanes nearby.
