Plane walking on Kinder plateau
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking in the Peak District may be interested in a walk organised by national park rangers exploring the many plane wrecks around the Kinder plateau.

Held on November 13th, it starts at 10:45 GMT at the Moorland Centre in Edale and ends at 16:00, with the time in between spent climbing up and walking across the high plateau and exploring the numerous sites.

The guide to the event - which coincides with remembrance Sunday - states the right clothing and footwear is required, so hiking boots, walking trousers and waterproofs are all advisable items to bring.

Crashed plane fragments cannot be removed from the site by law, so although many of the tragedies occurred in wartime, parts of the planes remain to this day.

Kinder is the loftiest place in Derbyshire, with the highpoint of the plateau at 636 metres (2,088 ft).

The other area of moorland to top 2,000 ft in the national park is the Bleaklow Plateau to the north, which also features some crash sites.
