Might be nice to go and lie and cool down in those patches over the next few days.

Mark - tks for the photos, spot on - can you identify the exact locations, grid ref etc, many thanks

Photo tags now have grid refs on them.

Very small remains of snow at NY717316 in Shake hole SE of GDF.

Snow patches visable in the Kirkdale Gulley until 04/06/10

Additional snow patch which actually outlasted the Crossfell Western snow and Kirkdale Gulley by one day was a few miles SE roughly at NY718277.

These appear to disused mine workings in the small valley in which Great Rundale Beck flows, at a height of 580m asl.

On google earth these workings appear to form excellent nivation hollows.

Just been over Hartside in the last hour, there is only one patch I can see the usual one on NE section of Crossfell, nothing visible on the west at all. Pennines just about clear before it started raining again.

Mark - are you able to keep an eye on your patch ? tks

Hartside Patch still visible on Friday afternoon 11th June. I have read a report there is a patch on GDF which is only visible when out on foot.

Below is a diagramme I have lifted from the British Rainfall Book 1959-1960 - hope you can make it out. The text goes on to say that the "Alston" observer recorded the snow level on Crossfell.

Don't think so, but it'll really need someone to have a walk up there to have a good look.
