Bits of Engine, Bits of Wing
Bits of Engine, Bits of Wing
More of the sad remains of an aircraft which crashed here in 1942 with the loss of seven lives. The location is so remote that it has never been cleared and the wreckage is here as a memorial.
Some map editions, including the one currently accompanying these pictures, show the memorial a bit to the north of here. Hardly a problem, there's nothing else here except moorland.
