Snow settled at Rivington Terraced Gardens as temperatures dipped to 1.3 degrees today.
The heritage trust, which is working to conserve the gardens, posted a selection of pictures on Facebook saying simply ‘Winter is here‘, ‘It’s snowing in the Gardens’.
One picture showed a flurry of snowflakes with Rivington Pike in the background.
Chorley residents were quick to react online. Dawn Clarke wrote: “Up there yesterday... What a difference a day makes!”
Heidi Hodson wrote: “Wow, like a scene from Narnia.”
Dare devil Peter Smith gave a more adventurous reaction when he wrote: “Mountain bike weather.”
