The extensive remains of this RCAF Wellington on Carreg Goch, Black Mountain, Brecon Beacons, with memorial in the foreground.

A little documentary video can be seen at the link below. Nice that the National Park staff coordinated opposition to it being taken away to someone's garden in Preston, rather than colluding in it, as we are told they did in Snowdonia.

Location: SN 81618 16921

Thanks for the Blog guys, as someone who regularly walks the Beacons (and tries to find some of the wrecks, not with too much success either) your coordinates will really help.
Thank you.
