  • The Miracle on the Mynd – Simon Whaley
    Carr skipped lunch when he set out on 29 th January to Ratlinghope taking with him a small flask of brandy and a servant with a horse The sensible twelve mile road trip was impassable so they attempted Carr s Long Mynd crossing However the horse soon became stuck in deep impenetrable snowdrifts Within a mile Carr sent the servant and horse back continuing alone on foot Battling through thigh deep snow Carr found the only way to negotiate deeper drifts was on his hands and knees Some 2 ¼ hours and four miles later Carr arrived safely in Ratlinghope After his short 45 minute service he declined offers of board and lodgings for the night and began his return trip for Woolstaston s 6 o clock service Cheating death During Ratlinghope s service the weather had deteriorated Struggling through gale force winds driving snow and sleet stung Carr s eyes frequently knocking him off his feet disorientating him As night fell Carr grappled against the elements Suddenly he slipped plummeting steeply into a ravine hitting rocks spinning him headfirst into the rocky valley below The pace I was going in this headlong descent must have been very great yet it seemed to occupy a marvellous space of time Carr wrote long enough for the events of my whole previous life to pass before me as I had so often heard that they did in moments of extreme peril Kicking his foot deep into the snow ice axe like Carr brought himself to a halt Manoeuvring himself upright he gingerly dropped to the bottom of the ravine into 20 foot snowdrifts Carr clambered up the other side of the valley Cresting the ridge he soldiered through waist deep snow before plummeting again into another ravine this time losing his gloves Icicles formed in his short beard stretching to his waist his hair was a block of solid ice and balls of ice formed under his knees Exhausted Carr continued falling into deep snow every two or three steps Snow blindness As dawn broke Carr realised he was snow blind Unable to see he fell numerous times often dropping several hundred feet and once over the upper drop of Lightspout waterfall near Carding Mill Valley when he lost his boots Carr s Woolstaston parishioners had embarked on a rescue mission the night before but been beaten back by the weather In the morning they searched again reaching Ratlinghope only to learn that Carr had set off home over twelve hours earlier When a body of another man was found in the snow nearby the parishioners returned to Woolstaston convinced that Carr had perished in the snow too On the morning of 30 th January with frostbitten fingers and toes Carr heard children s voices Scared of the ice covered creature they ran off telling adults about the bogeyman in Carding Mill Valley Curious locals soon realised it was Carr and welcomed him into their homes After some warm refreshments Carr was
