1954 Snow at Beeding Bridge

Yes, it's true! The River Adur turned to ice.

The picture above wasn't  taken in April 2008, of course, but in February 1954. This view of Beeding Bridge, held in the Steyning Museum archives, may shock many local people who are used to milder winters. Photographs of the weather are becoming ever more fascinating to local historians.

So, on with our record of a snowy day in April 2008 . . .


Steyning Museum


St Andrew's Church


Saxon Cottage

Church Street


High Street Cottage


And finally - on April 7, cowslips and primroses
battered by hailstones.
