The UK experienced some unusually extreme wintry weather at the start of January 2010. We live in Berwick upon Tweed in the north eastern corner of England, next to the Royal Border Bridge which carries the East Coast railway line over the River Tweed. Below is my pictorial diary of the period 4 – 9 January 2010. All the photos and videos were taken with my Samsung Jet S800 phone.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this pictorial diary of a wintry week in Berwick upon Tweed. It’s very beautiful but I’m hoping that the cold snap won’t last too long so that life can get back to normal.
