Derbyshire weather: 19 astonishing photos of times when the county was hit by extreme weather

Parts of Derbyshire ground to a halt last week when the county was hit by snow.

But Derbyshire is used to extreme weather, as this photo gallery shows.

Last October a major incident was declared in the county, including Chesterfield, following significant flooding caused by Storm Babet.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes as flood waters reached record levels in many areas and Maureen Gilbert, 83, was found dead after she was unable to escape the rapidly rising water inside her terrace home, in Chesterfield.

Other photos in our gallery include Ladybower Dam when it was at it lowest in 1976, German prisoners of war clearing snow in the High Peak Britain's worst blizzards for 50 years and the major flash floods in June 2007.
