Pateley Bridge

We went over to Pateley Bridge in Yorkshire to look at some of the cluster of wreck sites around there yesterday.

We had a day of moderate success, starting with readily finding somewhere to get breakfast (four fried chickens and a coke for me, dry white toast for Mick) in Pateley Bridge.

Ten miles exactly, across mooorland very reminiscent of Bleaklow yielded two of the day's planned wreck sites, a Piper Cherokee and a Handley Page Halifax. The last one (a Wellington) probably eluded us, though we found a mystery bit.

We'll be back to clear this, and the dozen or so other sites we have in the surrounding area. It's a far better centre of operations than Ilkley.
