The snow started falling Saturday 17th March 2018, it briefly stopped for 4 hours on Sunday 18th March between 6am and 10.30am, and then it returned at full pelt until 3am on Monday 19th March 2018. Below are photos taken on the 18th March 2018. All the footage is shot on the Samsung Galaxy S9+.
Plus a short video.
The top photo and the one below are of the road leading out of the village. About 300 yards further down, the road was totally blocked with a huge snow drift lasting about 100 yards.
The above shot is at the entrance to Princetown.
You can just about see the Tors in the distance. This was using the 2 x optical zoom of the S9+. The wind was still very strong.
Heres a tweet showing the road further down, that even caused 4 x 4’s to get stuck, including a Police Land Rover. The local police spent 90 mins digging themselves out.
Heres a short video of the conditions https://www.pscp.tv/w/1OyKANbOmWWGb

Above, its not snowing anymore, but the wind is blowing strongly.
The snow is deep, in many places with 10ft plus snow drifts. Below Fury, Sophie and Tiggy enjoying the snow.
Nothing stops George from having a run.
