A rare day out for me and Mick yesterday took us to the Liberator crash site on Black Hameldon near Hebden Bridge, where these undercarriage components have survived the looters (see the "more info" link for details).

Hi Sean nice to see you get a chance to get out to a site ! just been up to Blenheim V6099, my first trip out of the year and found loads of small bits, some with inspection stamps + .303 ammo dated 1940 !
