Synopsis:

This short story was based upon the winter of 1963 which saw the country in the grip of severe snowfalls and record breaking cold temperatures. January and February saw many of the Saddleworth villages cut off for days on end. Many of the homes had no electricity as the overhead cables had collapsed under the weight of freezing snow. More than ever the camaraderie and neighbourly support was felt and shared by all in looking after each other. The severe weather caused the sheep from the surrounding Moors to take refuge in the village where farmers and villagers came together to provide emergency shelter and food for them.
