Derbyshire's High Peak Air Crash Sites - Northern Region
There is also an ebook version available of this title, it is for sale from Amazon or your usual provider.
This comprehensively researched and well-illustrated survey guides the walker to the thirty-nine air-crash sites – representing forty-two aircraft – in the northern region of the High Peak, from Glossop to Huddersfield.
Between them, the High Peak and White Peak areas have accounted for over 300 air crashes [301 crash sites, 308 aircraft]. Most of these occurred because aircrews had unwittingly drifted over high ground.
It is appreciated that many walkers prefer to have tangible evidence to seek out. Part One, therefore, contains eighteen sites where surface evidence exists.
Part Two, contains similar details of the twenty-one sites where no such evidence remains. All, however, have been equally authenticated, and in each case a proven ten-digit grid reference is given.
Part Three aims to save walker-investigators time and effort, detailing fourteen sites which, though often found in print, are spurious.
