About Walking the Wrecks
Your guide, Alan Clark, has a vast experience of researching and locating the historic crash sites scattered across the high ground of the British Isles, having visited over 550 such sites beginning more than 20 years ago with the crash sites in the hills of the Peak District. He is a qualified Mountain Leader; professional member of the Mountain Training Association; Outdoor First Aider as well as a Mountain Rescue Casualty Carer with one of the teams in the Peak District National Park.
In addition to visiting a multitude of crash sites Alan also co-authored the book, “Aircraft Wrecks: The Walker’s Guide”, the book details over 500 sites in the UK and Ireland as well as maintaining the research led Peak District Air Accident Research website on which you can find the historical backgrounds of all of the crash sites you are likely to visit on a walk.
Walks to aircraft crash sites are held in a variety of areas and range from easy to strenuous.
Over the years it has been my privilige to take numerous relatives of air crew who were involved in crashes in the hills to the places where their loved ones often perished and to the places where they were laid to rest.
This has always been at no cost to families and will remain so.
