Lightning, Hurricanes, Lancaster: Tintwistle Knarr

Originally uploaded by seansonofbig

A bit of a navex for me and Mick yesterday on Tintwhistle Knarr, near Glossop. The aim was to find all three of the sites by map and compass alone, which was achieved quite easily, though extensive changes to fences and widespread reseeding with grass and chopped heather has made the landscape quite different from its appearance on previous visits.

The Lightning and Hurricane sites have acquired standing stakes since my last visit, which will make finding them a little easier in future.

Other than that, the remains at all three sites looked just as they did on previous visits. Our publishing of the site coordinates has not caused them to be looted as many told us they would be.
