Snow returns to Magog Down

In December 2017, for the first time in nearly five years, this part of the world had a light covering of snow and the locals were quick to take advantage of Magog Down's handy hill for some snowy Sunday fun on their sledges. Little Trees Hill at 74m is one of the two highest points on the Gog Magog HIlls.

Prior to this, the last time anyone can remember getting their sledges out was in January 2013. This time the weather event was also recorded on our Twitter account.

POSTSCRIPT, April 2018:
As the winter of 2017/18 dragged on, bringing with it the famous "Beast from the East", we became all too familar with the sight of snow on this little hill of ours!  Does our changing climate mean we can expect regular sledging weather yearly now, or will we have to wait five years again? Only time will tell...

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
