Snow Clearance, Gatelands Lane

Snow Clearance, Gatelands Lane
2nd February 1947. The severe snowfalls of 1947 began to settle towards the end of January. Between then and well into March, snow fell every day in Britain somewhere. The heaviest snowfalls since 1814 were recorded. The extreme weather conditions were aggravated by the immediate post-war shortages of food, fuel and materials.

What we are looking at here, is a picture of near to the end of the era when Nature had control of its own destiny. A few years after this picture was taken, its grip began to be steadily, and progressively loosened. Not only this country, but the whole world saw the eventual huge explosion in the use of fossil fuels, and its accompanying downside. Humanity holds nature's tiller now. I hope that it knows how to steer correctly.
