Those who like to go walking
in the Peak District may be interested in a ranger-guided event on this Saturday (February 25th) exploring the moors near Fairholmes.
Like much of the Peak District and some other upland locations around Britain, the High Peak saw a number of air crashes in the Second World War and the trek aims to explore some of these.
Starting at Fairholmes on Derwent Lane at 10:30 GMT, the five-mile walk is one over rough and steep ground in places, the guide notes, advising that hiking boots
must be worn. Waterproofs
may also be useful in case it is wet or even if there is some late winter snow, while those taking part have also been asked to book ahead and also bring a packed lunch.
Fairholmes visitor centre sells guidebooks about plane wrecks on the High Peak moors.
Notable plane crash sites include Higher Shelf Stones on the Bleaklow Plateau and Mill Hill near the watershed between William Clough and the Ashop Valley, which is crossed by the Snake Path.
