Big Freeze 50th anniversary - send us your memories

This is The West Country: Big Freeze 50th anniversary - send us your memories Big Freeze 50th anniversary - send us your memories

DO you remember the Big Freeze of 1963 when it snowed and never seemed to stop?

The year started with snow and it didn't thaw until early March, with record low temperatures all over the country.

We're looking for any old photos from that time and also people's memories of what it was like being snowed in for weeks on end.
