Brixton snow: more chilly scenes from south London

Snowy scenes over Brixton, south London, Sunday 5th February 2012

I fear it won’t be around for long, but this morning there was still a fair covering of snow covering Brixton, so I headed out, camera in hand.

My chilly photo tour took me around Coldharbour Lane, Loughborough Park, Brixton Station Road market, Brixton Village, Windrush Square and St Matthew’s church.
