Primrose Hill toboggan run

I’m going to post some of my London snow photos here over the next few days. If you can’t wait and want to see ALL of the photos not just the ones that make the cut, you can check out my Flickr album, Snowy London. Both day and night shots are included in the album. View it as a slideshow to see the versions in large format.

Today, I’m posting photos from – you guessed it – Primrose Hill. The hill turned into a tobogganing heaven for kids of all ages. Don’t have a toboggan/sled? Don’t worry. Cardboard boxes, stolen street signs, recycling box lids, breakfast trays, plastic bags wrapped around bums, and sheer willpower were used to make the glide down the hill easier. And there were plenty of crashes, near misses and tumbles.

Snowmen were created, dogs turned the snow yellow, and snowballs were thrown left, right and centre. But more of all of that next time.

Snow in February imminent!

As regular readers over the years will know, the possible arrival of up to 10cm of snow in London overnight is very exciting!

Normally I’ll wander down to Primrose Hill or Regent’s Park but I think I might want to try and take photos of more urban/suburban sights this time.
