This past week has seen some of the coldest weather in some years here in Yorkshire. Weather arriving from Russia and the north coupled with high winds has meant that our usual grit and determination to be open for visitors had to be tempered with the knowledge that we much also keep our staff and visitors safe.
Our large parkland location means that there is an awful lot of ground to make safe, so therefore we have not been open as punctually as planned.
So instead, here’s a gallery of some images shot in just a 60 minute period this week in between the snow storms and driving winds. There was little time for standing around and thankfully, the high winds kept the clouds moving through, meaning that there was not much freezing while waiting for sunshine!
For those of a photographic interest who may wonder the usual photographer’s query of “what camera?”, they were all shot by the Museum’s Neill Watson in just a 60 minute period, using a combination of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and a Sony mirrorless A6300 camera.
