Aircraft wrecks on Kinder and Bleaklow

Over 150 aircraft have crashed in the Peak District, mostly on the bleak moorland which the area is renowned for. Due to the remote nature of these places, most of the wreckage remains where it fell, waiting to be discovered by adventurous hill walkers with the navigational skill or good luck to find them.

Andrew McCloy has written an excellent blog over on the Mammut website, with photography by Mike Smith, which he's been kind enough to share with us.
