Best Answer

Summer was fairly average but the winter of 1946-1947 was the coldest winter in living memory with people and animals dying of cold across the country and snowdrifts up to 21 feet deep cutting off towns and villages. The sea froze and in some areas petrol froze in buses so that transport was difficult. Over half the sheep and cattle died in the fields because it wasn't possible to get fodder to them.
