Black Ashop Moor near Glossop. From a day out walking from Hayfield to Kinder with Dave Ascough.

The wreckage of Sabres XD707 and XD730 of 66 Squadron which crashed on the 22nd July 1954.

Despite the calm appearance the wind was entertaining as we attempted to cross the moor on frozen snow that gave way under our feet every few paces. Dave patiently had a spot of lunch whilst my hands froze, camera in hand, waiting for the sun to cross the snow.

This wreckage is relatively easy to find, although I’ll leave the explanations to those with a bit more experience: http://peakwreckhunters.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/kinder
