I was aged 11 in 1963 and remember the big freeze very well. However, I can't remember our school ever being closed, and we had to go in every day. It was only about a 10 minute walk and I believe that, in those days, most of the teachers lived fairly locally and could, if necessary, walk to work, too.

I can remember my parents telling me that the 1947 freeze was much worse.
