THIS IS THE WALK POSTPONED FROM 19/06/2019

There is the wreckage of more than 80 aeroplanes spread around the Peak District mostly from the wartime era and early 1950's.

Despite that passage of time there is still a great deal of debris left behind and it is quite a shock when you stumble across it and think about the lives that have been lost.

With limited time we can only view the small number of wrecks that are easily accessible but still a very interesting and enjoyable walk noneless.

Overall distance: < 8 miles

Accummulated ascent: 550m
