Thank you Rosa. A mum and her daughter made this snowman whilst on there way home from Tesco's The banana was a great touch. They went on to sledge down the hill. Good fun.

I like the fact that this hill is a British icon known by many because of an advert for bread in the 1970's. It is still famous today and is a must see by many tourists.

Hi snowman!!!Funny picture.

David Hodson on September 26, 2014

Hi ewcia2331, this is a fun picture, a waist of a good banana but I thought when I saw the snow man 'that's great'. It was made by a Mother and her young daughter. This hill is one of the most photographed hills in Britain and this image shows it in a way that is not often seen. Thank you for your visit and I hope to hear from you again.
