Just after some advice.

I have to drive up to Hinckley, Leicestershire Wednesday and then Langley Mill, Nottingham Thursday where i will then be getting the train back home to South Wales. The question is im just wondering what the weather is like in these areas as i dont want to be stranded 200 miles from home.

Are there any roads i should avoid?

We've had next to no snow in Leicestershire. I do know that there's quite a bit around Milton Keynes which is only around 30 miles south of here.

Are you going RTech Tom? As its in Hinckley.

Roads are fine up here to be fair. Rather slippy at the minute because of the cold but clear.

The company i work for has its workshop on Hinckley industrial estate which is literally behind R-Tech but to get to it you have to drive all the way around. Might stop past R-tech Wednesday if i make it up to Hinckley.
