The above scene has become a familiar sight over the last week wherever a slope exists around Wombourne. Perhaps one of the most popular venues for sledging within reach of the village is Pickerel’s Hill (apologies if the spelling is inaccurate), visible from the Wombourne roundabout on the A449 Wolverhampton to Stourbridge Road. The particular steep gradient there attracts many snow sport enthusiasts.
The above slope close to the centre of Wombourne is less challenging, but still attracts many local families.
Snow has become a common feature of village life for over a week now, with possibly more showers on the way.
