UPDATED: Snow on Dereham shop roof still hanging on

The white mass, which captured readers on EDP24 earlier this week, has significantly reduced in size after large chunks relinquished hold of the Edinburgh Woollen Mill on the towns High Street.

The snow came down in two separate avalanches when there was luckily no one standing underneath.

A notice, put out on the pavements by the shops staff, had warned passersby to beware.

The remaining lump of snow is stubbornly holding on in the corner. People who have spent days watching it from nearby shops and offices have almost given up hope of it ever falling.

Original story published on EDP24 on Monday November 29:

A menacing looking lump of snow on a shop roof in Dereham is giving shoppers cause for concern.

As they negotiate the sludge-covered High Street, townsfolk are being warned of a large accumulation of snow above their heads.

Staff at the Edinburgh Woollen Mill have put a notice on the pavement warning people to beware - over-hanging snow on roof.

Keep checking this website to find out if and when it drops.

  • Hmm. I do hope this is the first of a series. 'Snow on Dereham pavement could make shoppers slip' is an obvious follow-up.

  • Ooer- this is pretty frightening for those concerned shoppers. Did you get their names? They could be eligible some compensation through stress.

  • It happens there every year. Usually a pile of compressed ice left on the floor outside the shop where the snow falls.

  • Let's see a photo then!! The EDP office is opposite the shop so should be easy enough to do! If the glacier is worthy of making the news, it's got to be worthy of a photo!
