Over the last few weeks we have had many cold and snowy nights but last night we recorded – 11 centigrade. This we think could well be the coldest we have recorded at Chatsworth for many years possibly since the early eighties?

This however is still slightly warmer than Braemar in Aberdeenshire where last night the temperature fell to – 16.7 centigrade! Ironically having moved up from Cornwall a couple of years ago the warmest place in the U.K last night was the Isles of Scilly with a barmy 7.8 centigrade.
