February rain and storm Doris drove sheep to take protection under the walls.

During the late days of February, storm Doris struck in anger during the daytime hours of Feb 23rd on Chelmorton. After a woolly night, the wind built up throwing plastic bins about Main Street, sheep took sensible steps to shelter under the west-facing walls. As wind raced about the place fields became waterlogged with the driving February rain.
