Those of you who heeded the warnings and stayed tucked up in doors over the last 24 hours may not be aware that we have been pretty much cut-off from Shrewton.  Here are a few photographs taken by a lovely chap, Matt Bennett, early this morning showing the snowdrifts on the B3083 beteeen here and Shrewton.

Heading up the A303 and then onto the A360 hasn’t been a much bettter prospect for most of the day – it’s been closed both north and south of Longbarrow roundabout.

This also shows that the B390 eastbound, from Chitterne to Shrewton, is also closed.  With problems further west on the A303 and A36 at Deptford and further east on the A345, it’s been an interesting day.   One thing is very clear.  It’s very unlikely that there will be any rat-running through Shrewton tonight.

Take care if you plan to go out shopping first thing on Saturday morning, just in case there have been low temperatures overnight making things icy.

    Yes Andy, I was just thinking how lovely and quiet Shrewton was this afternoon while out with Jasper….perhaps a taster of how life will be when they put the A303 underground!!

    I’m pleased to say that as of 1600 on Saturday 3rd March, the B3083 seems to be open (according to Wiltshire Police) and the A360 north and south of Longbarrow roundabout opened earlier in the day. The thaw is now well underway.
