    • Thank you Z&G. It is on Kinder Scout in the Peak District – you can see exactly where if you click on the map links above (in the ‘Location’ section just below the first photograph).

  1. These images take me back 50 years to when I used to hike and camp every weekend around Edale, Chinley, Buxton, and elsewhere. Every Saturday morning three of took the steam train from Chorlton-cum-Hardy station to somewhere “really wild” in Derbyshire, loaded down with a tent, Primus stove, tins of beans, condensed milk (which always spilled), cakes baked by our mothers.

    I listened to a couple of programmes on the BBC World Service a month or so ago on an anniversary of the Kinder Trespass… and there were several mentions of the huge number of planes that crashed and lives that were lost on Kinder and Bleaklow. It all seems hard to believe nowadays – even though I was born in 1944 at the end of the war – but it is important to continue respecting these sad memorials.

    Oddly, now I have also seen your North Welsh work, I’m wondering if our paths have ever crossed (with lenses pointing in the same direction) as that area was also my stomping ground for several years in the ’60s and ’70s.
