Our first human visitors braved the journey to the barn this Spring arriving amidst a blizzard on March 22nd and this was the scene greeting them. The wind was so strong that snow fell horizontally and made mounds of snow drifts around the farmyard. They had to abandon their car at the Hornby junction but luckily Paul, our woodsman, just made it up the Roeburndale West road in his landrover and drove them here.
