Traffic Update

The Hereford to Aberystwyth downmail stagecoach was brought to a halt by the snows on Radnor Forest. Thankfully the passengers had disembarked and the horses been unharnessed when an avalanche swept the coach from the road and left it buried underneath a fourteen foot drift. The stranded party managed to find shelter at the nearby Forest Inn.

In case anyone is worried this was in January 1854, not this morning.
