小编摘要:近日,英国摄影师在一处静谧的乡村附近拍下的冬季景致,与三十年前在完全相同的地点拍摄的照片作对比,显示了三十年来英国冬季气温的巨大变化,英国正享受着最温和的暖冬之一。

导读:照片是在一个在沉睡的乡村同一地点拍下的景致,这些如诗如画的照片正是英国近年冬季异常温和的完美例证。30年前的今天,英国有史以来的最低气温纪录在什罗普郡的Cardington附近,降到了惊人的-26.10°C。但三十年后,在完全相同的地方拍摄的照片显示着不同的画面——白天气温预计不会低于80°C,整个英国继续享受着近年来最温和的冬季之一。

Freezing: A striking picture of country lanes near Cardington, Shropshire photographed on January 10, 1982 depicting England's lowest temperature ever seen

Taken at exactly the same spot in a sleepy rural village, these picturesque photographs are a perfect illustration of the unusually mild British winter.

Thirty years ago today, England's lowest ever temperature was recorded near Cardington, Shropshire - with the mercury falling to a staggering -26.10C.

But pictures taken at exactly the same spot three decades later paint a dramatically different picture - with daytime temperatures not expected to fall lower than 80C as the country continues to enjoy one of the mildest winters in recent memory.

A Met Office spokesman told MailOnline it no longer kept a record for Cardington, but the daytime temperature in nearby towns of Newport and Shawbury was 11.2C today.

Bill Burrell noted the record-breaking low temperature at a weather station near Newport, on January 10, 1982, and says he remembers the day vividly.

'I had frost on my eyelashes,' the former Met Office worker recalled. 

'I knew it was cold that day, but it came as quite a shock when I saw it was minus 26.1C.

'It had snowed the night before, but had cleared up and it was a lovely day - just bitterly, bitterly cold.'

Thirty years later, things could hardly be different from that ice-cold day - with forecasters saying there is no sign of a blanket of snow or a big freeze for at least the next couple of weeks.

The mild weather can be seen in every corner of the British countryside, with snowdrops already blooming and daffodil shoots bravely starting to appear.

This is a far cry from the fiercely cold winter of 1982, when one of the most disruptive snowstorms on record occurred - with gale force winds and heavy snow sending sever blizzards across southern England, the Midlands and Wales.

Throughout the snow fall temperatures were recorded as between -20C and -40C but in Shropshire temperatures fell to a chilly -260C, which, to this day, remains the coldest temperature on record throughout England.

The record is viewed by many experts as an odd one for Shropshire to hold as the county's climate is generally moderate with an average minimum temperature of just 5.20C.

However, its rural and inland location means temperatures have been known to fall dramatically on clear winter nights.

Met Office spokeswoman Alison Richards said: 'The mild westerly flow from the Atlantic has been unimpeded - allowing milder Atlantic air and changeable, often stormy, conditions to take charge.'
