Sunday walk report 16 October 2022

A small select group enjoyed clear weather and extensive views.
The route up onto Bircinin Bank moss was steep but manageable on the few bits of good path on this walk.

We had a bit of an interesting time finding the crash site of a Wellington bomber. this wasn’t helped my my mistake of setting a bearing from a point on featureless moorland a bit south of where we should have. this set up a parallel error which necessitated a brief back track and short search downslope to find the crash site. A wander up to Near Bleaklow Stones took up straight to the crash site of a Defiant night fighter. from which we could just see the brash site of a Blackburn Botha almost half a mile away.

A lot of pleasant time time was spent as 3 middle aged men reminisced about making models of these planes from Airfix kits when we were small boys

Thanks Geoff and Andrew for your company. I ll try to get a photo on the wattsap if my IT skills will let me
