There was a 'Same again on New Year's Day?' thread in the forum in 2006 (a follow-up to our first Christmas Day effort), which did attract a few photos taken on New Year's Day, some commenting on the gloomy weather. 169 contributors took and submitted photos of their outings on the day, though 54 of them were submitted in later years, the most recent in 2017.
I've arranged my selection from the images in more or less (map) north to south order, and added a brief description where there was none.
