It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas throughout Dacorum, with the wintry weather giving the borough a truly festive feel.

Temperatures have dropped below freezing over the past few nights, creating a frosty haven for photographers including Thom Power who captured the conditions in Ashridge and Little Gaddesden.

Other hardy snappers have also been braving the conditions to capture the Christmas card-like landscapes across the borough.

The Hospice of St Francis, based in Berkhamsted, posted a snap of their gardens in the frost onto their Facebook page this morning (pictured), and Sally Mason got a picture of Bunkers Park in Hemel Hempstead.

The cold snap is expected to continue today, with forecasters predicting that the temperature will struggle to climb out of minus figures.

It looks set to be all change tomorrow, though, with a downpour of rain predicted to hit Dacorum as the temperatures climb to around 9°C.
