Would you recommend this for winter?

I need a winter bike to do some light work about 2 x 30 miles per week, purely do this for fitness as I am 53 years old.
I use a Scott CR1 Pro for sunny days.

I only want to spend about £500 so was thinking about a second hand one.

However I noticed a Boardman CX for £540 at Halfords, would you recommend this or buying a used bike.

does this take mudguards?
