Lightning: Tintwsitle Knarr

Walked up Tintwistle Knarr near Glossop with my 4 year old daughter yesterday to look again at the wreck sites up there (previous visit here). Great weather, was sweating by the time we got to the top.

A short distance from the oft-photographed cross and wreckage pile from the Lightning crash was what looked to be an impact site with these good-sized chunks of wreckage. The crook-shaped bit is maybe 500mm long, cast aluminium alloy.

Location: SK 03940 99077
