At Christmas 1927, a freak snowstorm hit Brighton. In the town and at Rottingdean the snowfall was nothing out of the ordinary, just about 2 inches, but up on the heights of Woodingdean it was quite another matter as can be seen by these photographs. At this period there were but few houses on the Downs Estate and little to break the winds, which swept across it. A strong north-east wind drove the snow across the Downs and it piled up in a drift against the wall of Warren Farm Schools.
