Snow in Cornwall UK . Photos of snow in the Cornish mining town of Redruth in the Duchy of Cornwall sent in by AndySnapz, almost looks like Wales.

Snow in Redruth, Cornwall

World Heritage Status places Cornwall’s historic mining landscapes on a par with such international treasures as Stonehenge, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China but you may not have heard much about it in the media. Cornwall’s 5000 year tin mining history, and the Celtic culture it supported, is often ignored.

The rest of the UK was experiencing some of the deepest snow in 18 years.

Penzance vanishes from view as more snow clouds move inland. They were getting pretty excited on the Laurence Reed show, giving out snow reports for the whole of the  the Duchy of Cornwall! The moors really are a picture here
