With everyone in the UK dreaming of a White Christmas...but the odds stacked against it once again, we take a look back when the beautiful seaside town of Tenby had a heavy snow sprinkling over the festive period making the picturesque harbour especially magical at this ‘most wonderful time of the year’.

It was December 2010 just days before Christmas Day, when heavy snowfall turned popular locations into pretty snow scenes and children had great fun sledging, making snowmen and throwing snowballs.

Tenby appeared to be one of the worst hit areas with around three inches of snow falling in just two hours, as schools closed early, along with shops and businesses.

But the snow also brought misery for others as they tried to make their way home through the worst of the wintry weather, with the main roads in and out of Tenby becoming more and more treacherous at the height of the wintry blizzard with vehicles being ditched on roadsides, as roads became like ice rinks at the height of the blizzard.

There was chaos at The Green when The Maudlins, Broadwell Hayes and Heywood Lane all closed due to the arctic conditions.
